Up All Night! Epic's Artistic Director to Write 24-Hour Play
Epic Theatre Company is thrilled to announce that we're doing our first-ever Patreon-athon--an all-night writing extravaganza that will put our Artistic Director to the test!
In the spirit of The Contemporary Theater Company's 24-Hour Play Festival, our AD, Kevin Broccoli, will be staying up twenty-four hours straight to complete a full-length play from start to finish--and he'll be streaming the entire process.
"This is something I've always wanted to do," says Broccoli, "I've participated in CTC's amazing 24-Hour Play Festival before, but then I only had to write a short piece, and I got to go home after a few hours. This time, I'll be writing all night long into the next day. It's going to be a real test of endurance and creativity. Here's hoping I make it."
We'll have Kevin stationed at our theater located at 50 Rolfe Square, and we'll be inviting special guests to come by and distract him while he races to complete a brand new piece of theater.
While he writes, we'll be signing up as many new Patreon supporters as we can. If someone would like to become a Patreon supporter, they can sign up now by going to www.Patreon.com/EpicTheatreCo and get free tickets, exclusive content, and the chance to help pick our next season.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, January 27th at 6pm. That's when he'll be kicking off the Patreon-athon.
