Although not strictly improv, this will be an evening with some very original plays which were only written the night before. I went last year and it was so good that I would have believed it if someone had told me they'd been rehearsing for months.
I will be volunteering at the bar, so am easy to find :)

Please get your tickets asap if you'd like to come along as it does sell out! Protected content

One theme. Six Writers. Six Directors. 21 actors. 6 casts.

24 hours to write, rehearse and perform an original play in
Protected content . Approximately 40 people who have successfully applied to be a part of Play-in-a-Day will meet in person to find out what the theme of the festival is. The range of skills and experience will vary from the polished performer to the total novice. A random ballot is held, and teams of 5 to 7 people are formed, consisting of a writer, a director and Protected content – their collective goal to write, direct and perform six short Protected content plays, all connected by the theme. The writers write their original scripts all night long. The next morning at 7am, the directors meet with their respective writers to discuss their scripts, and then at 8am, the actors gather and rehearsals begin.

Twelve hours later, at 8pm Saturday 16 March, the shows begin.
