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.


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.






Friday evening, 7:30 pm --  an evening of Showcase Plays

Enjoy performances of three short plays written by OPP’s own Jack FrakesWatch 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 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 is voted on; plus a Critic’s Prize is chosen by a panel of judges from Tucson’s theater community.
