anything. And it’s a whole lot of fun to watch!
Fusion Fest II – Monmouth College Department of Theatre’s second
annual 24 hour play festival!
Here’s how it
works: At 7:30 PM on Friday, September 5, a group of
playwrights will each randomly draw a team of actors, a
director, and a random phrase. The intrepid (and soon to be
sleep-deprived) playwrights then have a mere 12 hours to write a
short play featuring their actors and, at some point in the
dialogue, their random phrase. At 7:30 AM, the playwrights hand
off their brand-new creations, and the director and actors then
have until 7:30 PM to rehearse, stage, and memorize it all
before performing before a live audience.
hijinks are bound to ensue as part of this chaotic and exciting
