29½ Hour Playwriting Festival (2010)


Performance Date
Sunday, September 12, 2010

Sacramento City College Student Center
8:00 pm



A City Theatre Tradition! Take a group of playwrights, give them an image or phrase, assign them three actors and a director, and send them off to write a play in ten hours. Bring them all back together the next day to rehearse the play in preparation for a performance that night. What do you get? An amazing and often wild evening of theatre.
