Project Playwright, in its second year, puts playwriting to the test. Aspiring local playwrights debut new works that are written, rehearsed and staged in less than 24 hours, then performed before a panel of judges and a voting audience. Participating writers get their assignments at 9 o'clock the night before their 10-minute one-acts are seen. Keep the coffee on. Winners from each round (the contest began last weekend) move on to a final round, in which one winner is selected. Featured playwrights are Stephanie Demaree, Jose Faus, Cynthia Hardeman, Michelle Johnson and Jonathon Peck. Be a critic for just $10 at the door.
