About This Show

Impetuous Theater Group presents The Second Annual 47:59 Play Festival. It’s a fierce race against the clock to write, rehearse, and perform six brand new plays in exactly 47 hours and 59 minutes. Six playwrights write a first act of a new work over the course of one evening. The following morning, the piece is handed off to six directors and 18 actors, who rehearse the pieces for performance that evening. After the first act comes down — that’s when things get really interesting. The playwrights then rotate and write the second act of one of their colleague’s works from the previous night.

Produced by Jamie Klassel, associate producer Amanda Haley.
