PDX Playwrights presents 

Crazy Dukes Instant Play Festival Launch

Produced by Katie Bennett

FESTIVAL DATE: Jan 25 @ 9pm

VENUE: Hipbone Studio, 1847 E Burnside St., Portland OR 97214


The kickoff of PDXP’s third Crazy Dukes Instant Play Festival! This Festival-within-the Festival-within-the-Festival is guaranteed to be the very newest, freshest work performed at Fertile Ground 2019. How do we know this? Because the work is being created DURING the festival! Think of it as theatre on a highwire with no net. Six talented playwrights will obtain 3-4 prompts and will be randomly assigned 2-6 cast members on the night of PDXP’s Daisy Dukes Shorts Night and afterparty. The playwrights will then write, rehearse, produce and perform 10-minute plays within 48 hours. Come help kick off the creative process by offering your suggestions of actions, themes, lines of dialog, or props that MUST be included in all six plays. Then audiences can come back and see the results on Sunday night (Jan 27). Guaranteed crazy – and guaranteed amazing!
