Never heard of the it before? Well, the 48 Hour Play Festival is a challenge that Center Stage offers every year. Starting at 7:00pm March 1st, writers are given a mad-lib that must either influence or be said in the play they write. They have until 7:00pm March 2nd to write a 10 minute play. After all the plays are written, they are distributed to directors and actors. They have until 7:00pm March 3rd to rehearse the play and perform it that night in front of an audience. Performances start at 7:30 in Theatre 220.
