Mudlark Theatre acknowledges the palawa people as the traditional and original owners and continuing custodians of lutruwita (Tasmania)
One Day has become something of an institution thanks to the careful guiding hand of its engineer and previous curator of many years Stuart Loone, the support and platform provided by Mudlark Theatre and the hundreds of artists who contribute passionately to the project.
Since the first One Day in June 2004 there have been 123 new plays created by teams of plawrights, directors, actors and technical crew. Over 200 individual artists have been involved in One Day throughout the years.
In short, playwrights, directors, actors, producers and technicians get together to create between four to ten one act plays - and write, rehearse, produce and perform them in 24 breathtaking hours. Defying impossibility. Risking total and complete failure for the adrenalin of utmost success.
Created out of a desire to get graduates from the UTAS theatre degree creating, talking and panicking together (and to answer the question "can it be done?"), the ONE DAYS have since developed into a community celebration of the local theatre scene.
