Best Bets: 24 hours til showtime
The pressure is on the local playwrights — and those who just occasionally play at playwriting. On Friday night, eight writers will draw who, what and where prompts. They’ll have until Saturday morning to create a one-act script that local actors will rehearse throughout the day and perform Saturday night.
As a twist: Each script must incorporate a common cameo, in this case, Crystal Pelkey, the producing director of The Underground.
How’s that for a turnaround.
The Chicken Hat Plays are one of the defining events on Rubber Chicken Theater’s schedule.
