The annual tradition of creating totally brand new theatre in twenty-four hours returns to the MPF!

As part of the Maine Playwrights Festival celebration of new and local works, acting and playwrighting students at the Acorn Acting Academy create five world-premiere plays sharing the same prompts over the course of 24 hours.  A zany and adrenaline-packed ride through the theatrical process culminating in a fun and spirited evening of performances! 

The 24-Hour Theatre Project will be performed at the Studio Theater at Portland Stage (25 Forest Avenue). Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in Maine, the festival has been postponed. New dates for the festival will be announced soon.

Thanks to our MPF 2020 sponsors.
