“Three Hour Theatre” was a script development and performance of brand new plays created THAT DAY! All writers were given one line that they must use in their script that they drew on the day of the event.

3HT - Working w cast

Our “Three Hour Theatre” (ZERO-102) event went over swimmingly. With around 30 people crammed into Fresh Café in Corpus, we mounted several new plays written by local playwrights and two outside of the Coastal Bend area. Our featured playwrights were Anel Carmona from New York City and Gabriel Ruiz from San Antonio. Carmona, who has done several off-Broadway plays, live-streamed her play in. The other featured playwright, Mr. Ruiz, attended the event. The playwrights were given one hour to write a play, the next hour to rewrite/edit/workshop the play in the rehearsal process. Finally, the plays were presented after the workshopping has been completed.

In no particular order, these are the following plays and their respective casts:
