Today, The 24 Hour Plays, in partnership with The New School for Drama, announced that the annual application for The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals will be available starting March 11, 2019 and will run through April 1, 2019. The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals will take place in August in New York City.

The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals is a rigorous professional experience for artists 25 and under. Over the course of four days, six playwrights, six directors, six producers, twenty-four actors and one composer engage in intensive workshops, panel discussions, and finally, their own production of The 24 Hour Plays in an off-Broadway theater. The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals present an opportunity, at no cost, for young artists to meet their peers and build relationships that will serve them throughout their careers. The 24 Hour Plays seeks the very best of the next generation of theatermakers and arms them with what they need in order to find their way in this business — each other.

"The 24 Hour Plays are the best way to bring any community of artists together for a transformative experience," said Mark Armstrong, Executive Director for The 24 Hour Plays, "but they provide an especially meaningful experience for the young artists who've used this experience to launch important careers. Alumni of The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals are everywhere in the arts and entertainment industry and we're looking forward to welcoming the next great group of the artists of the future this summer."

"The 24 Hour Plays have been awesome for me," said Bekah Brunstetter (playwright: The Cake, screenwriter: This is Us), 2007 alumna of the program. "I really needed a community and they connected me with an awesome group of actors and directors who I still work with to this day."

“Nationals is a launchpad for the next generation of theatre artists,” said Colette Robert (director, Behind the Sheet), 2007 alumna. “It gave me an artistic community.”

Previous Nationals have featured discussions with Annie Baker, Jocelyn Bioh, Renee Blinkwolt, Michael Chernus, Claire Danes, Kristoffer Diaz, Maria Dizzia, Timothy Douglas, Rachel Dratch, Joel Marsh Garland, Lucas Hnath, Julia Jordan, Thomas Kail, Karen Kohlhaas, Warren Leight, Aasif Mandvi, Lou Moreno, Bruce Norris, Denis O'Hare, A. Rey Pamatmat, Austin Pendleton, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Max Posner, Adam Rapp, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Christopher Shinn, Leigh Silverman, Lucy Thurber, Liesl Tommy and many other stage and screen professionals.
