48 hour forum

News is fast. Theatre is slow. not this time.

How do we process the barrage of news coming out of the Middle East and here at home? Often, the news breaks and it's several years before we see something on stage about it. Such is the nature of theater making. 48 HOUR FORUM is designed to take a look at these events in a more immediate way. A 48-hour play festival where five playwrights, five directors and twenty actors create five short plays in 48 hours inspired by the news of the day.

Five short plays presented in one evening, 
inspired by the news of the day, created in just 48 hours.

Playwrights: Keith Josef Adkins, Ismail Khalidi, Mona Mansour, Pia Wilson and John Walch

Directors: Peter Ganim, Noelle Ghoussaini, Shana Gold, Victor Malana Maog, and Erin Mee

Actors: Michael Braun, Leila Buck, LaChrisha Brown, Caitlin Cassidy, Demosthenes Chrysan, Gamze Ceylan, Bridgit Antoinette Evans, Ramsey Faragallah, Aaron Costa Ganis, Connie Hall,  Russell G. Jones, Layla Khoshnoudi, Nadine Malouf, Lori Parquet, Jesse Perez, Christina Pumariega and Steven Rattazzi

All profits benefit Noor Theatre and their work to develop, support and produce the work of theatre artists of Middle Eastern descent.
