Presented by Western Australian Youth Theatre Company

WA Youth Theatre Company (WAYTCo) presents its signature 24Hour Play Generator for the 7th year running. This highly anticipated event takes participants to their creative edge, culminating in a wild night of performances at the Subiaco Arts Centre.

On Saturday June 3, under exquisite pressure, a group of emerging writers aged 15 to 26 work for 12 hours straight, assisted by experienced dramaturgs, to create fresh out of the oven, new short plays. That evening a 24Hour Play Generator Judging panel selects six winning plays.

In a new twist, 2023 directors - Alex Steffensen, Libby Klysz, Cezera Critti-Schnaars, Andrew Sutherland, Tom Heath and Alexa Taylor – are advance given a copy of a winning script (on Monday June 5) – so that they may read it and open the tap on their creative juices (and genius). At break of dawn on Saturday June 10, another 12 hour day of activity kicks off. The directors will work intensively with six WAYTCo-member casts to bring the works to life. Finally, at the 24th hour, the audience arrives to enjoy six world premieres in one evening: The newest and freshest work in the country!
