They’re writing in coffee shops, on the bus, in the park — and they’ve been doing it for 23 hours straight.

Join Pat the Dog Playwright Centre’s Artistic Director Lisa O’Connell as we wind down the last hour of our Annual 24-Hour Playwriting Contest. How do they do it? Why do they do it? How can I do it?

Come to Pat the Dog’s international headquarters in Waterloo’s heritage Button Factory as Lisa counts down the last 60 minutes of this intense contest while discussing the format in an hour-long seminar. She’ll look at how to survive the contest, how to write under pressure, why artificial deadlines can be important and why even acclaimed playwrights still enter these contests.
