PANSA 48hr Play festival Showcase

I’m taking part in PANSA’s 48hr play festival showcase this weekend. How a 48hr festival works is that writers get a cast description and a something (like a newspaper or piece of music) to include in their play. They go away and come back 24 hours later with a 10 minute play, which is handed over to a director and the cast. They have 24 hours to put the play together. Costumes, set, music, lights, words, you name it; all in 24 hours. Then, the plays are performed in front of a live audience.

For two years now PANSA has held this crazy form of theatre and dance as a competition, with the best writer, director, actor, choreographer and dancer chosen by judges, but this time around it is just a showcase, which is pretty cool. We (the directors) meet the writers tomorrow at 12 for a chat. Then, at 1800 we get the scripts and cast. The performances take place on Sunday at 1800 at Theatre in the District in Woodstock. It is great fun. Bite size theatre, made under pressure. Come and check it out. Call PANSA for tickets and details. Actually, I’ve just checked on their website, and there’s nothing about the festival! Sies. So maybe give them a call. 021 448 3513.

    See you on Saturday! Lokking forward to 48 mad hours with you. But hey! where’s your Tempest review? I can’t wait to get your take!

    Hi Megan

    Loving your enthusiasm for this event that we at PANSA enjoy so much. We kicked off at 6pm briefing writers, choreographers, composers and visual artists. Can’t wait to see you all working your magic. This particular time around the festival hasn’t been advertised as it is invitation only – and we are already full for Sunday night!

    (But we’re back again in September…)

    Hey Jaqueline
    See you later. No Tempest no review. I haven’t seen it. I was away for the previews and…cough..wasn’t invited to opening night.

    What makes you think you should be invited? You’re no one special. You run some improv thingie – very enthusing

    Ag shame James, it must be hard walking around with whatever it is you have stuck up there. Where did you see that I thought I should be invited? Of course I wouldn’t be invited! You are right. I am no-one special. What are you doing on my blog wena?

    Then why the sarcastic cough? How stupid of you to put it in there and give it all its meaning only to comeback with an idiotic utterance of “Where did you see that I thought I should be invited?” or was that cough unintentional?

    Good God how incredibly nauseatingly egotistical
