ALL IN A DAY Play Festival Begins January 17

The ninth All in a Day Play Festival sponsored by Dreamwell Theatre, Iowa City Community Theatre, and City Circle Theatre Company of Coralville will be held Friday and Saturday, January 17 and 18 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. These three local theatre companies have joined forces to sponsor this award-winning event to create and present six 10-minute plays in just 24 hours.

On Friday evening, January 17, six writers, six directors, and 30 actors will come together to create six original plays. Writers are randomly assigned a location, a genre, and one other dramatic detail to include in their scripts. Writers, actors, and directors brainstorm ideas and then the writers leave to create ten-minute plays by 8:00 am Saturday morning when the actors and directors receive the play.

The six original plays will be performed on Saturday, January 18 at 7:30 pm at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts - 24 hours after the start of the festival. Plays and performances are adjudicated and awards will be presented for performances, plays, and directors.

Tickets to the Saturday night performance are $15 and can be purchased at the door. Seating is general admission. Tickets can also be purchased in advance at or by calling 319-248-9370, or in person at the CCPA box office at 1301 5th Street and at the Coralville Recreation Center at 1506 8th Street.
