I have been invited to participate in this unusual creative experience in midtown Manhattan.  What happens when a group of actors, writers, and directors converge together with the task of writing and performing a new play in 24 hours? Insomnia!

Friday night, October 17th, at 6:30 p.m. we will meet for our Insomniacs orientation meeting. Directors, playwrights, and actors will be introduced and assigned to a group. The groups will meet and briefly and get to know one another before the writing begins!

The playwright will then go to work to compose the most brilliant script ever written! As soon as the play is complete, the actors are called in for an all-night rehearsal process with their director. The next morning (Saturday the 18th), tech rehearsals begin at Theatre 54 and evening performances will be given in front of live audience at 7:00pm and 8:30pm.
