It’s a star-studded race to showtime as seven young playwrights collaborate with professional actors and directors to stage their own original works live at the New Victory Theater—all on 24 hours’ notice! For one night only, experience the passions and perspectives of some of New York City’s brightest young creatives in a showcase of short plays conceived, written and rehearsed over a single day and night. There’s no rest for the revolutionary!
