Event Description

Since 1997, 14/48: The World’s Quickest Theater Festival has challenged Seattle’s most daring theater artists to write, cast, design, direct, score, rehearse, and perform 14 world-premiere plays in 48 hours, dazzling audiences every time. Each weekend, artists gather on Thursday night. Writers are given a theme and write a play on that theme by the next morning. Directors are chosen at random, the plays are cast at random, musicians arrive and form a brand new band. Friday night, we present 7 world-premiere plays–never seen before, never seen again, impossible to forget–and then ask the audience for a new theme so we can start the whole process again in what the The Stranger describes as “a punishing artistic exercise in speed and endurance.”
