About the festival


THE MISSION: You have 24 hours to produce a brand new piece of theatre, starting Friday 16th August at 7pm.


THE TEAM: The finest actors, writers, directors and crew Network has to offer, divided into crack squads who will work together to produce something incredible.


THE FINAL SHOWDOWN: Between 5 and 8 brand new plays will be performed for family and friends on Saturday 17th August at 7pm.


That's right, Network's Play-In-24-Hours is back.


This year we will be in the bowels of Waterloo station from the evening of Friday 16th August until late on Saturday 17th August producing multiple pieces of completely original theatre.


During the course of a night and a day we will come up with a theme, divide into teams, devise, improvise, script, rehearse, nap, tech, perform our final pieces and then celebrate in the bar.


Anyone can get involved, whether you just want to loiter around behind the scenes or improvise an entire Shakespearean monologue on stage.


You're welcome to stay up all night working on your masterpiece or have a well-earned sleep and start again fresh the next day.


The theatre will be dark from 1am to 7am so bring a sleeping bag and find a corner to curl up in.


This event is FREE for Network members and £10 for non-members - so bring along your friends for a show that only requires one weekend of commitment!
