The inaugural Big Dawg 24 Hour Playfest at the Cape Fear Playhouse in Wilmington, NC, features teams of four to six actors who write, rehearse and perform an original one act play lasting 10 to 15 minutes. The teams meet 24 hours before their show date to receive an envelope containing 10 things that must be included in their 10- to 15-minute one act play. Each team will then have 24 hours to put together a show. A panel of three judges award scores for each of several categories. The team that wins is awarded two weekends, rent-free, to put up a show of their choice (comedy show, original play, published play, etc.) at the Playhouse during the 2015 calendar year. Thursday, May 22 and Friday May 23 are reserved for adult participants, ages 18 and up. Saturday, May 24 and Sunday, May 25 are reserved for youth teams, ages 10-17. Please note: The Sunday performance is a matinee beginning at 3pm.
