Writing Residency Program Year 2 playwright Marcus Scott continues to stay busy. On April 7, he will be one of six playwrights participating in The 24 Hour Plays at Mile Square Theatre in Hoboken NJ.  The 24 Hour Plays bring together writers, actors and directors to create brand new theatre pieces all within a one day time frame. (Think 48Hours in...Harlem, only half as long.) Mile Square Theatre is under the artistic direction of Kevin R. Free, a good friend of Liberation Theatre Company.

Congratulations Marcus. For tickets:
