2019 Insomniacs 24 Hour Play Festival

web site

The Grex Group Theatre and Guiltner Creative Productions are proud to present the 2019 Insomniacs 24 Hour Play Festival


How it works
We invite some of the best up and coming actors, directors, and writers in the NYC area to converge upon a theatre for a weekend of creating new works to be performed for a live audience.

On Friday, March 8th at 7 p.m. THE CLOCK BEGINS with our mandatory registration and orientation meeting where directors, playwrights, and actors meet and are assigned to their team.  Each team is given instructions and a packet with a theme they must incorporate into their script.

The playwright will then seclude themselves somewhere within the city as they write the most brilliant script ever written!  As soon as the play is complete (usually within a few hours), the actors will be called in for an all-night rehearsal process with their director.  Then Saturday morning, March 9th tech rehearsals will begin at the Royal Theatre (Producers Club), and an evening performance is given in front of a live audience at 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

How participants are chosen
We are looking for seasoned and early-career professionals for our festival!  Great care is given to choosing our participants and our festivals rely upon the skills and talents of each person to make it a success!

Submit your resume and a writing sample (short plays are preferred) along with a  brief cover letter / email describing your writing experience and why you feel you are a good fit for our Insomniacs festival.   Please write *WRITER* in the subject line.

For more information, please visit our web site or contact us!

When will I know if I’m selected as a festival participant?

We will contact you through email to notify you if you are selected into our festival.  You will be required to ACCEPT or DECLINE your spot within a 48 time period.  If we have not heard from you within that time frame we will give your slot to someone else.
