WHY: You love TV and supporting live theatre. You know you do.
23-HOURS? Yes. We meet the night before and pair up our directors, writers and actors by drawing names from a hat. Once the seven “teams” are chosen, the writers have 9 hours to write the scripts. Actors receive them the morning of the show to rehearse and memorize. To give ourselves an extra challenge, IAMA reduced the traditional 24 hours by one. Cause why not?
