The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals present an opportunity for young artists to meet their peers and begin building the relationships that will serve them throughout their careers. We seek the very best of the next generation of theatermakers and we arm them with what they need in order to find their way in this business. In August 2018: the next group will come together for a series of intensive workshops, panel discussions, and finally, a production of The 24 Hour Plays.
Previous Nationals have featured discussions with Claire Danes, Rachel Dratch, Aasif Mandvi, Warren Leight, Thomas Kail, Leigh Silverman, Denis O’Hare, Annie Baker, Karen Kohlhaas, Lucy Thurber, Kristoffer Diaz, Liesl Tommy, Lucas Hnath, Maria Dizzia, Timothy Douglas, Bruce Norris, Austin Pendleton, Lou Moreno and many other stage and screen professionals.
This four-day intensive is brought to participants completely free by The 24 Hour Plays and supporting sponsors. Interested in learning more about how to keep this program thriving? Support us here.
