THE MISSION
On Wednesday, January 18th, six playwrights will meet... they will select at random an article from that Randomly Chosen Date. They will randomly choose two or three actors for whom they have to write the play. They will have 24 hours to crank out their first draft!

On Thursday, January 19th, the playwrights will meet their cast and their directors (who will likewise randomly choose the plays they will direct), and AT 8:00 P.M., THEY WILL BE PRESENTED AS SIT-DOWN OR CONCERT READINGS FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN FRONT OF YOU, THE AUDIENCE! A discussion will follow...

After that, they have one day to rewrite based on the notes from the discussion. They will have one more day to rehearse the play with their cast and director. Then...

THE PLAYS WILL BE PERFORMED, FULLY STAGED AND OFF-BOOK
ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 21ST at 8:00 p.m.
AND SUNDAY, JANUARY 22ND at 7:00 p.m.
