NTS produces non-stop theatre show

21st June 2011

A non-stop, 24-hour theatre show organised by the National Theatre of Scotland (NTS) is set to begin today.

The production will begin tonight at 17:00 BST, streamed live on the NTS website, and will comprise dozens of short performances submitted by professional and amateur actors across the planet.

According to the NTS, the project has been 'created by anyone for a worldwide audience of everyone', with many actors performing live in theatres across Scotland including the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen, Adam House in Edinburgh and the CAA in Glasgow.

Marianne Maxwell, project coordinator of the event, said the show must go on, regardless of any technical mishaps.

'Everyone involved in the live performances is an experienced stage manager, and even if something does happen, like the internet goes down in one of the roving locations, we can slot in a pre-recorded play and juggle with the running order a little bit,' she explained.

The first of the 235 performances will be The Gods Are Watching by Horsecross Arts, with Lawrence Clark's production of Shutdown bringing the theatrical marathon to a close tomorrow evening.
