Our annual 24-hour playwriting festival is BACK!

No Sleep November has been a KC theatre tradition since 2013! On Sunday night, six teams of playwrights, actors, and production assistants are drafted together, assigned a couple of challenges, and then sent off to create new 10 minute plays to be performed for the public in a one-time-only show the next evening! These exceptional KC artists have just 24 hours to make their masterpieces - and what will result is anybody’s guess.

No Sleep November is an eclectic, invigorating celebration of live theatre and raw creativity that you do not want to miss. Check out the schedule below!
