For the seventh year running, Old Vic New Voices (OVNV) partner with the 24 Hour Play Company and IdeasTap to discover the next generation of theatrical talent in a grand theatrical experiment like no other. A company of twenty one actors, six writers, six directors and six producers aged between eighteen and thirty will be challenged to create six brand new short plays from scratch in just twenty four hours. From the playwrights' first ideas, to casting, rehearsals, prop sourcing, the lighting design and sound effects, everything must be completed in one day, ready to be staged in front of more than one thousand VIPs and members of the public, on the Old Vic's one hundred and ninety three year old stage.
