About this Event

What is 24-Hour Theater?

The creative process begins Friday evening, when playwrights will start writing original one-act plays. Rehearsals begin Saturday morning… then it's Curtains Up at 8:00 pm on Saturday, just 24 hours later in front of YOU, our live audience!

That's Crazy! Why Do That!?

All proceeds will support Valley Youth House’s Pride program, which provides housing and supportive services for LGBTQ+ youth. Statistics show that LGBTQ young people are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than non-LGBTQ youth; it’s estimated that 40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ identifying.

Who's Participating?

The project includes acclaimed actors, directors and playwrights from some the region’s favorite theater organizations – including the Barley Sheaf Players, Bravo Theater, The Dramateurs, Inc. at the Barn Playhouse, Narberth Community Theater, and Underbite Theatre Company.
