Overnight Sensations 2020
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, Overnight Sensations will take place entirely on ZOOM.
On Friday night six playwrights are randomly paired with six directors, who then randomly draw from a hat a variety of writing prompts and a pre-selected cast of actors. Before 8 am the next morning, they have to write a 10-minute play. They meet via ZOOM with their directors over a virtual continental breakfast on Saturday morning and make any last minute changes before the actors sign in to ZOOM and the plays begin rehearsal. When 8 pm rolls around, and the audience are at their screens and the show begins!
