All in a Day Play Festival - (2016)

Dreamwell Theatre and City Circle Acting Company of Coralville will host the 7th Sometimes Annual All in a Day Play Festival on Saturday, October 8. The two theatre companies will once again join forces for this award-winning event to create seven ten minute plays in just 24 hours.

On the night of Friday, October 7, seven writers, seven directors and 35 actors will come together to create seven original plays. Writers are randomly assigned a location, a genre and one other dramatic detail they are charged with to include in their scripts. Writers, actors and directors brainstorm ideas and then the writers scurry away to create a ten minute play by 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning. At that time, the actors and directors take over. Twenty-four hours from the start of the festival - after a whirlwind of creative mayhem - theatre lovers are treated to a variety of unique shows at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. Plays and performances are adjudicated and awards will be presented for performances, plays and directors.

This has become a very popular event, for participants and audience members alike. In its 7th year, it's sure to be as exciting and dynamic as ever!

This year, we are pleased to welcome both former and brand new writers, including:

Tony Craine
Matt Falduto
Megan Gogerty
Janet Schlapkohl
Brian Tanner
James Trainor
Amy White
