Zero Untitled – NYC’s third production is complete!

3ht 3ht kte “Three Hour Theatre” is our annual play-writing festival that was staged in Brooklyn, NY this year, in collaboration with our new branch Zero Untitled – NYC and the host venue The Way Station. Production took place on Monday, September 25, 2017.

Program director is Anel Carmona, who previously directed “Unending Repetition” (Manhattan Repertory Theatre and Zero Untitled – NYC).

Like last year’s production, “Three Hour Theatre” will be all about playwrights writing short plays for one hour, then directors rehearse actors for an hour, and then the plays are all performed back-to-back-to-back!

Both new and established ZU-NYC actors were Kate Remelius (formerly of the Texas branch), newcomers Stephen Tan and Jacob Edwards. The director of the two plays was another newcomer Seth Roseman. The third play did not have a director and the allotted time ran out.
