24HourplaysposterShanghai Community International School Hongqiao, working with SCIS Pudong, SCIS Hangzhou, BIS Pudong, SAS Puxi, and Dulwich College, is producing a wonderful production – The 24 Hour Plays. This is going to be a massive theatrical 24-hour event: Everything that occurs in the theatre happens within 24 Hours from playwriting to performance. International High school students and their teachers from around Shanghai are coming together to create an invigorating experience for theatre fanatics.

The event has received the great playwriting expertise of Alice Tuan, Head of Writing for Performance at CalArts, and the help of very experienced directors like Jonathan Geenen (3rd Culture Theatre) and Virginie Knight (Le Troupe du Théâtre Francophone de Shanghai).

In October 1995, the first production of The 24 Hour Plays took place on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Inspired by Scott McCloud’s 24 hour comics (comic books composed in a single day), project creator Tina Fallon (Saturday Night Live) saw an opportunity to bring together a community of creative people in a time-limited experiment. The project was intended as a one-time-only event. For more information: www.24hourplays.com
