The  24  Hour  Plays®  originated  in  New  York  in  the  mid-­‐90s  and  is  now  an  annual  gala  benefit  on  Broadway,  as  
well  as  at  the  Old  Vic  in  London,  with  performances  in  Chicago,  Athens  and  around  the  world.  The  first  Irish  
incarnation  of  The  24  Hour  Plays®  received  its  sold-­‐out  Irish  premiere  presentation  in  February  2012  at  Project  
Arts  Centre  and  went  on  to  win  a  Special  Recognition  Award  for  Best  Event  at  the  Irish  Fundraising  Awards.  In  
January  2013,  the  show  moved  to  the  Abbey  Theatre  where  it  played  to  a  sold-­‐out  house.    
DYT’s  artistic  director,  Gary  Keegan  welcomed  the  news  of  the  fundraiser:  "The  goodwill,  the  buzz  and  the  
level  of  support  generated  by  the  24  Hour  Plays  fundraiser  has  been  stunning.  The  event  brought  together  the  
very  best  of  talent  from  the  theatre  community  in  Dublin  in  a  show  of  solidarity  with  Ireland's  longest  
established  youth  theatre.  This  year  Dublin  Youth  Theatre  is  delighted  to  once  again  present  The  24  Hour  Plays  
on  the  Abbey  Theatre  Stage  with  even  more  big  names  from  Irish  Theatre  and  raising  much  needed  funds  
which  will  help  Dublin  Youth  Theatre  to  continue  to  provide  its  artistic  and  social  programme  for  the  Dublin's  
young  citizens."  
The  24  Hour  Plays  producer  Eva  Scanlan  is  delighted  to  return  to  the  Abbey  Theatre  with  The  24  Hour  Plays®.  
'We're  very  proud  to  be  partnering  with  the  Abbey  Theatre  again  to  present  the  3rd  annual  24  Hour  Plays  for  
Dublin  Youth  Theatre.  This  event  has  found  a  place  in  the  Irish  theatre  calendar  and  its  home  in  the  Abbey  
Theatre.  We  look  forward  to  working  with  some  familiar  faces  next  March,  and  to  welcome  a  host  of  first-­‐
timers  to  the  24  Hour  family.'
