CAT Theatre is once again the East Coast Host to the Red Eye 10s International Play Festival. The festival takes place on September 30, 2017, and is a 24-Hour, 10-Minute Play festival featuring six original plays in multiple theaters around the world ON THE SAME DAY! Red Eye hosts produce the six plays and share that process with everyone else involved through social media and our redeye10s.com website. It’s a worldwide collaboration and celebration of new work. The festival culminates in an exciting evening of public performances on September 30, 2017.
This year, Producer H Lynn Smith is looking for a wide variety of team members to participate in this 24 hour event at CAT Theatre. This is a volunteer event.

CAT will provide some generic props and costumes.
