Since 2006, the Playwright’s Lab at Hollins University has partnered with Mill Mountain Theatre to present our version of the 24-Hour Plays. On Friday night six playwrights are randomly paired with six directors, randomly draw from a hat a variety of writing prompts and a pre-selected cast of local actors, and overnight write a 10-minute play. The next morning, they meet with their directors to make any last minute changes before the actors arrive and the play begins rehearsal. When 8 PM rolls around, and the audience are in their seats, the show begins! Always a packed house, always free, and always lots of fun for everyone. This year we are excited to welcome Jim Beaver as our special guest!
