"Sudden Theatre," where playwrights, directors and actors race the clock to come up with short plays within a 24-hour period, returns this weekend to the Village Theatre, 2113 E. 11th St., Village of East Davenport.
New Ground Theatre is presenting the annual showcase, where playwrights get a prompt (a title, word or theme) on Friday night, and have until the next morning to compose a one-act play.
Directors cast and rehearse the plays beginning Saturday morning, and they are performed at 7:30 p.m.
Four plays will be presented, in one performance only.
The suggested donation admission is $5, which benefits New Ground Theatre.
