The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals 2019

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.

THE PROGRAM

We seek the very best of the next generation of actors, writers, composers, directors and producers, and arm them with what they need to find their way in this business.

Over the course of the four-day intensive, Nationals participants engage in new play development workshops, panel discussions and artistic labs that culminate in The 24 Hour Plays.
