All in a Day Play Festival

Saturday, January 18

Presented by Dreamwell Theatre, City Circle Theatre Company, and the Iowa City Community Theatre

The All in a Day Play Festival sponsored by Dreamwell Theatre, City Circle Theatre Company of Coralville, and for the first time this year, Iowa City Community Theatre, will be held Friday and Saturday, January 17 and 18. This is the ninth time City Circle and Dreamwell theatre companies have joined forces to sponsor this award-winning event to create and present six 10-minute plays in just 24 hours and are thrilled to be joined for the first time by Iowa City Community Theatre. The final performance will take place Saturday, January 18 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts

On Friday evening, January 17th, six writers, six directors, and 30 actors will come together to create six original plays. Writers are randomly assigned a location, a genre, and one other dramatic detail to include in their scripts. Writers, actors, and directors brainstorm ideas and then the writers leave to create ten-minute plays by 8:00 am Saturday morning when the actors and directors receive the play.

The sign-up form for actors will open at noon on Sunday, December 29, 2019 at www.dreamwell.com. The first 30 actors who sign up will be cast. Slots fill quickly and a waiting list will be kept. The time commitment for actors is 2 hours on Friday evening, January 17 and the entire day and evening on January 18.
