Old Pueblo Playwrights’ Play-in-a-Day is an annual event with the crazy premise that a half-dozen plays can be written, cast, rehearsed, and performed -- all in less than twenty-four hours. Audience participation, sleep-deprived playwrights, and cash prizes are all part of this fun, two-night festival.
Join us for interactive theater at its most original!
All performances are script-in-hand, staged readings. Old Pueblo Playwrights (OPP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the creation of new dramatic works by Arizona authors.
$7 per night/$12 for both nights

HOW IT ALL WORKS:
Friday evening, 7:30 pm -- an evening of Showcase Plays
Enjoy performances of five specially selected short plays, written by OPP members. Watch as twelve playwrights are randomly paired for a night of collaboration. Join fellow audience members in writing a line of dialog and selecting three props -- all of which must then be written into each of the six overnight plays.
Friday night and into the morning --
Each pair of playwrights create a 10-minute play. Scripts are due at dawn.
Saturday morning --
Directors arrive and actors are chosen. They’ll spend all day rehearsing until…
Saturday evening, 7:30 pm -- an evening of World Premiere Plays
Six world-premiere plays appear on the Cabaret stage for the audience’s pleasure and amusement.
Two cash prizes are awarded: An Audience Choice Award is voted on;
plus a Judges’ Award is chosen by a panel of judges from Tucson’s theater community.
