6 new plays created in just 24 hours with some of the Twin Cities’ most bad-ass female theatre artists! Theatrical thrills, spills, triumphs and tragedies – you witness the results – one night only!


We invite the general public to vote among ingredients such as a line of dialog, an emotion, a prop, or a stage direction. On Friday evening at 9:00 pm, we reveal the winning ingredients to six teams of two playwrights, who must include all the ingredients in their scripts. At 6:00 on Saturday morning, the newly written plays are assigned directors, a cast, and rehearsal time. Rehearsals are conducted throughout the day – technical rehearsals skid to a halt just in time for the doors to open. Performances start at 8:00 PM!
