24 Hour Play Fest: A Fundraiser for Dani Girl at the Fringe
Playwrights, directors and more than 20 actors will gather on one day to create six, one-act plays in 24 hours. It’s an exercise in theatrical survival, one that brings together a huge community of theatre professionals throughout the Pittsburgh area to explore just what can happen when creativity is on a time crunch.
Performance on April 17th, 7:00pm in the Music Hall
Tickets $20.00 at the door.
