Nothing Without a Company presents:

24-Hour Fest Volume V

Saturday, September 2nd 

Berger Park Cultural Center

Shows begin promptly at 7:30pm

 A showcase of six new site-specific ten minute plays written, rehearsed, and performed in 24 hours.

What is a 24-Hour Fest? 


On the evening of Friday, September 1st, six playwrights, six directors, and eighteen actors are randomly sorted into teams of five.

Each team is composed of one writer, one director, and three actors and assigned one location within Berger Park Cultural Center.

The teams devise a new ten-minute play to premiere 24 hours later.

Four of the six plays will be performed in the exterior spaces of Berger Park and two within the South Mansion.

The audience will travel throughout Berger Park and experience each performance consecutively.
