Overnight Sensations 2022
A micro-brewed theatre festival presented by the Playwrights Lab at Hollins University, in partnership with Mill Mountain Theatre which this summer will take place on the Hollins campus. Event is free and open to the public.
Due to Hollins University's Culture of Care protocols regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, all audience members will be required to show proof of full vaccination (either two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson) and at least one booster AT THE DOOR to attend a performance. Everyone is also required to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times while in the theatre.
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 with their directors over a virtual continental breakfast on Saturday morning and make any last minute changes before the actors arrive and rehearsal begins. When 8 pm rolls around, and the audience are in their seats and the show begins!
