Writers, actors, directors, theater creators, and theater audiences alike are invited for an evening of quick script-making and flash-fried performance!
Every second Saturday of the month (except September), in the EXIT Cafe (156 Eddy Street), writers have 30 minutes to generate original monologues based around that night’s pre-selected subjects/themes (will they be drawn from a hat? WHO CAN SAY?!?). We cast actors from the crowd (no experience necessary), then at 9:30 p.m., they perform the work on stage in the café for an on-the-spot, one-night-only instant festival! Come join in the communal creativity, either as writer, performer, or audience!
Hosted by a rotation that includes local theater makers Sam Bertken, Stuart Bousel, Megan Cohen, Andrew Chung, Heather Shaw, and Jeunee Simon, admission to this event is FREE, with the Café staying open and staffed so you can purchase drinks and snacks all night long!
Writers and actors must be present from 8:30-8:50 pm for registration, followed by a 9:00 pm writing sprint, then at 9:30 pm, we perform the work. No need for reservations, though be there from 8:30-8:50 to get your name on the writer list as we will cap it at 16. Of course, if we get 16 writers, that means we’ll also need 16 actors, so be sure to come early and let us know you want to play!
As of December 2016, Saturday Write Fever became an exclusively EXIT event. To find out what the monthly subject is, follow them on Facebook, or check out their website at http://www.theexit.org/write/
