Boston Theater Marathon XVIII
May 8, 2016 at 12:00 pm–10:00 pm
Boston Playwrights’ Theatre presents the 18th annual Boston Theater Marathon. The Boston Theater Marathon features 50 ten-minute plays, by 50 New England playwrights, produced by 50 New England theatre companies in ten hours.
For almost two decades, the Boston Theater Marathon has brought together playwrights, directors, and theatres in an effort to foster collaboration between artists and producers. Many playwrights have enjoyed full-length productions with collaborating theatres because of relationships forged during the Boston Theater Marathon. Net proceeds from BTM ticket sales benefit the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund, which provides financial support to theatres and theatre artists in times of need.
ArtWeek attendees are also invited to the free Warm-Up Laps the day prior.
The Boston Theater Marathon is supported in part by the Boston University Center for the Humanities.
