A Fifth of PlaySlam!

May 9

7:30 pm

Watch 9 short (less than 3 minutes) new-and-original plays, directed by the North Carolina writers! A talented ensemble of actors, scripts in hand, perform with minimal set, props and costuming. Then YOU vote for your top three! During intermission votes are tallied, then in Act 2 watch the second short plays by the six playwrights who made it out of round one. Finally, YOU vote for the winner, who gets $100! (You get to watch the final 3 plays while votes are tallied.)

The lovely Cary Theater provides an up-close-and-personal venue, with the lobby coffeehouse ‘Brew’ serving up delicious sandwiches, snacks and whistle-wetters. Tickets are $13 ($11 for seniors, students and vets) plus tax.

This will be a high-energy hot mess of an evening, with loads of crazy fun and organized chaos. The directors and actors will join you in the audience, to also watch and laugh as their fellow artists perform.

Will Call tickets may be picked up at the box office beginning one hour prior to the concert.

For assistance with accessible seating requests at The Cary Theater after 3pm on Friday and throughout the weekend, please contact the general box office at 919-462-2055, and/or reach out to the House Manager beginning one hour prior to the performance.
