Put on a play in two days


Calling all playwrights and fans of the theatre: you have an unusual assignment and should you choose to accept it, you have 24 hours to complete the mission.

The 24 Hour Play Project is a universal concept brought to the local level by Bushwoman Productions director, actor, writer, Michele Bush, better known as the face behind Ab Fab’s Fat.

The 24 Hour Play Project’s concept is simple: a group of writers and a group of directors will get together at 8 p.m. They will write four vignettes to hand in by 8 a.m the next morning. The directors will then cast their production and present the play on stage at 8 p.m. that night.

"I want to see what we can do when we really put our minds to it in the shortest amount of time," said Bush.

Anybody interested in these brow-sweating, creative think tanks can contact Bush by e-mail at or call 604-938-1495.
