Actors Julia Stiles, Hugh Dancy, Justin Long, Cynthia Nixon, Rosie Perez, Julianna Marguiles, LIVE SCHREIBER and Brittany Snow are among the starstudded ensemble cast of this year's The 24 Hour Plays On Broadway.
The event will kick off in New York on Sunday 16 November (08), when a group of six writers will be given a nine hour deadline to each write a ten-minute play.
Six directors will then have one hour to read each play before spending 12 hours rehearsing with each cast.
The plays will then be performed to a live audience at 8pm on 17 November (08) at Manhattan's American Airlines Theater.
All proceeds will benefit the Urban Arts Partnership, which promotes the arts in New York schools.
