24-Hour Play Festival

Fresh Ink Theatre and Interim Writers proudly present the 3rd annual Mad Dash: A Theatrical Endeavor in 24 Hours! It’s a wild and wacky fundraiser that brings together the Boston theatre community to write, rehearse, and mount an evening of eight new plays in a single day.

Join us at the Cambridge YMCA on Saturday, July 11th, 2015 to see our crazy efforts culminate in eight original 10-minute plays, an amazing raffle, and a few other surprises along the way!


Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online in advance, or you can buy them day-of at the door, cash only. (And follow us on Facebook and Twitter for a chance to save a few bucks with an online flash sale!)


Break out those dollar bills because we are holding another seriously awesome raffle! In past years our prize packages, valued from $55 to $250, have included everything from restaurant gift certificates to lift tickets. Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter in the coming weeks as we roll out this year’s details!


Keep up with the madness on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the #MadDash2015 hashtag! We’ll be posting updates and photos from the Fresh Ink and Interim Writers feeds, as well as our participants’ personal accounts during the hours leading up to performance. Follow all the behind the scenes action and play along!
