What happens when entire plays
are created, rehearsed, staged, and performed for an audience – all
in the span of 24 hours?
Just about anything. And it’s a whole lot of fun to watch!
Welcome to Fusion Fest III – Monmouth College Department of
Theatre’s third annual 24 hour play festival!
Here’s how it works: At 7:30 PM on Friday, September 9, 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
Hilarity and hijinks are bound to ensue as part of this chaotic and
exciting theatrical event!
