Described by The New York Times as “the equivalent of a high-wire act without a net,” The 24 Hour Plays is an annual benefit in which several one acts are written, cast, directed and performed on Broadway in less than a day. as Black Book says, “It’s a raucous, foot-stomping evening which redefines fresh.”
