24-Hour Plays Series to Reach Brooklyn's BAM, July 24

News   24-Hour Plays Series to Reach Brooklyn's BAM, July 24 The 24-Hour Play Company—the itinerant troupe that regularly squeezes a clutch of new short plays out of several drafted dramatists, all in less that a day—will bring its act to the Brooklyn Academy of Music at 8 PM July 24.

Unlike previous outings, the BAM plays will not be quickly staged, but instead given a reading. The involved writers will report for duty at 1 PM Sunday. They will be given five and a half hours to pen a 10-minute play. Actors arrive at 7 PM to take a look at the resulting scripts and the works are read promptly at 8 PM.

Admission is free to the public. BAM is located at 30 Lafayette Ave.

The writers featured are Seth Bauer, Bryan Tucker, Andrew Davie, Aaron Friedman, Kara Manning, Emilie McDonald, Barbara Hammond and Ernio Hernandez.

Actors include Katherine Apicella, Nicola Barber, Matthew Brookshire, Micah Bucey, Harrison Butler, Todd Cerveris, Damion DaCosta, Vanessa Leigh Davis, Tim Ellis, David Fagin, Amelia Fowler, Sharon Freedman, Chris Guilmet, Alicia House, Lindsay Hunter, Michael Jones, Nicole Kempskie, Madeleine Maby, Tim McMurray, Michaela Murphy, Rob Neill, Elizabeth Neptune, Ron Noy, Jennifer Roy, Bianca Sams, Lyssa Thompson, Marilyn Torres, Alison Twardziak, Michelle Wilson and Maysoon Zayid.

The 24 Hour Play Company outings have performed everywhere from the Ohio Theatre and Lucille Lortel Theatre in downtown Manhattan to Broadway. Participating playwrights have included Warren Leight, David Lindsay-Abaire, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Will Eno and Teresa Rebeck.
