Get ready for utter madness, excitement and intoxicating creative fun. Featuring WA’s freshest new talent, from concept to page, to stage, all in 24 hours!

WA Youth Theatre Company (WAYTCo) presents its signature 24Hour Play Generator for the 6th year running. This highly anticipated event takes participants to their creative edge across two days, commencing at the King Street Arts Centre on Friday 17th June (Writing Day), and culminating in a wild night of performances at the Subiaco Arts Centre on Saturday 18 June.

WAYTCo's 24Hour Play Generator incubates some of the most exciting and untapped talent around.
At the break of dawn, under exquisite pressure, a group of emerging writers aged 13 to 26 work for 12 hours straight, assisted by experienced dramaturgs, to create fresh out of the oven, new short plays. That evening a 24Hour Play Generator Judging panel selects six winning plays. First thing the next morning, ink still drying, these are handed to six directors who then work intensively with six WAYTCo-member casts for the next 12 hours to bring the works to life. Finally, at the 24th hour, the audience arrives to enjoy six world premieres in one evening: The newest and freshest work in the country!

This year’s directors include an outstanding line-up of WA’s established artist talent, including Brendan Hanson, Sam Longley, Alicia Osyka, and Thomas Papathanasiou. These artists draw on their long and varied experience to realise the emerging playwrights' and actors' creative endeavours in a whirlwind 24-hour production.

WAYTCo Artistic Director, James Berlyn, said the 2021 24Hour Play Generator was the Company’s best yet: “The emerging writers’ visions were spectacularly brought to life. By multiple accounts, this year’s event was the freshest yet. Certainly, the audience wasin stitches and fully engaged for the entire presentation of short works.”

“The 24hour [Play] Generator was a brilliant event, once again... The quality of the plays just keeps going up and it’s a really great night out.” - Alison Morley, PARTICIPANT PARENT, 2021

“With a fiercely ticking clock keeping you on your toes, [it] leaves no room for egos, stress or second-guessing.” - 2018 participant

“A ridiculous amount of fun from start to finish” - 2018 participant

This year we’re going to crank up the ratchet further! Fuelled by the determination of young blood, don't miss WA’s next generation of artists rising to the challenge!
