Insomniacs 24 Hour Play Festival

web site

The Grex Group Theatre is pleased to announce our 2nd Annual Insomniacs 24 Hour Play Festival set for October 18th and 19th at Theatre 54!

How Does It Work?

Friday night, October 18th, at 6:30pm we will meet for our Insomniacs orientation meeting. Directors, playwrights, and actors will be introduced and assigned to a groups. The groups will have time to meet and briefly get to know one another before the writing begins!

The playwright will then seclude themselves somewhere in the city as they compose the most brilliant script ever written! As soon as the play is complete, the actors will be called in for an all-night rehearsal process with their director. The next morning (Saturday the 19th), tech rehearsals will begin at Theatre 54 and evening performances will be given in front of live audiences at 7:00pm and 8:30pm.

What Are the Rules?

  • Participants must be available for a full 24 hours prior to the performance. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • If accepted, there is a non-refundable $10.00 participation/registration fee. This fee is payable online and must be paid to secure your spot in the festival.
  • All participant groups will be provided with limited rehearsal space during the festival.
