It’s back and it’s going to be amazing — as it is every year! One Performance Only! You don’t want to miss it.

Six of Calgary’s most audacious indie theatre companies take on the dare to create an original 10-minute play in 24 hours — inspired only by a prop and a line of dialogue! Selected by a surprise host, these props and lines are designed around themes that reflect one of the participants’ unexpected passions. This is a challenge that only the most canny and bold will venture to undertake. Come see it for yourself.

Ideal for: Performances and recitals
Capacity: 386-412 
Accessibility: Theatre seating includes wheelchair accessible seats
Included: Fully customizable lighting and A/V options

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.

Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
