New Mexico School for the Arts presents

Stress and Coffee:
24-hour Play Festival

On Friday March 8, during Arts Block, five names will be randomly drawn from a "playwright hat" - these are the student playwrights. The writing process begins at the school at 7:00 p.m. and the student playwrights write all night long, with the help of a teacher mentor. 

On Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m., five randomly selected student directors arrive and get a one hour directing workshop. 

At 9:00 a.m., the student actors interested in auditioning arrive at the school and auditions are held.  Rehearsals begin at 11:00 a.m. and continue until the doors open at 6:30 pm. 

The performance will begin at 7:00 p.m. for the public, who will view these five fully staged plays that did not exist 24 hours before!

FREE — donations gladly accepted!
