Here is a video of a short (13 minute) 50s SF-inspired play that my wife wrote.

It was part of a 24hr Theatre project from a few years back. If you don't know what that is, you have 24 hours to pick actors, a writer and a director, then write, block and perform a completely original short play using all of the assigned actors and any assigned props or scenarios.

The video quality is-what-it-is and the actors are mostly first-timers, as was the director, but I think you might enjoy the script references.

Very impressive, Tim! Very Happy

I'm sure that Auriette wishes the performance had been recorded in a better manner, because even with this less-than-perfect video, it has an undeniable quality! Cool

Indeed, the person who was paid to video it didn't show up, so they had to scramble to get anything.

The 24hr timetable didn't exactly add to the smooth execution, but her contributions usually always won the "audience favorite" award. One even got expanded by someone into a full play but there's no video of that or the original that we're aware of.
