Phoenix Theatre Presents 

The Annual Sleepless Play Festival
This Year’s Theme is BAD DOG: Stories of Tricks, Pranks and One-Ups

Sept 6-7, 2019

Phoenix Theatre in Edmonds is holding their annual Sleepless Theatre Festival (previously the 24-Hour Theatre Festival) on September 6 and 7, 2019. 

This year’s festival is entitled Bad Dog and will feature six short plays centered around tricks, pranks and one-ups. 

Approximately 18 local, well-known actors, six playwrights and six directors will gather at the Phoenix Theatre at 7:00pm on Friday, September 6th. 

Actors will arrive wearing a costume of their choosing and with one prop. Directors blindly choose the actors, and playwrights are randomly assigned to each group. 

The writers then leave to create a 10-minute play overnight using their given costumed actors and various props. Actors and directors reconvene early on Saturday, September 7th, to rehearse until the performance at 7:30pm.

The public is invited to attend the selection process on Friday evening, then return for Saturday evening’s performance to see the six short plays that have been fully created in only 24 hours.

Festival dates: Kick-off and selection process – Friday, September 6th at 7:00pm - Free
Performance – Saturday, September 7th at 7:30pm - $20

Location: The Phoenix Theatre, 9673 Firdale Avenue, Edmonds, WA 98020

Tickets or information: online or by phone at 206-533-2000
