Daisy’s Madhouse Theatre has announced the third annual “Will Act 4 Food: A 24-Hour Play Festival” to benefit The Idaho Foodbank.
The plays will be presented on Saturday, Feb. 4, 7 p.m., at Boise Little Theater. Tickets are $15.
What makes this event unique is that the entire festival – the writing of the plays, the rehearsals, acting and directing – will take place within a 24-hour time limit, thanks to a brave group of theater volunteers.
On Friday, Feb. 3, at 8 p.m., writers will begin to create original works in a variety of randomly assigned genres – drama, tragedy, comedy, farce, absurdist, suspense and adaptation. The writers are given a line and a prop they must use within a 10-page one-act play. The next morning, directors and casts are chosen randomly for each of the one-act plays, and rehearsals begin at 8 a.m. Showtime is 7:30 that night.
The result is an enormous amount of fun and some great displays of creativity under pressure.
