This Friday and Saturday, January 13 and 14 marks the last two days to catch 14/48: The World’s Quickest Theater Festival. The show goes down at ACT Theatre in Washington State Convention Center. 14/48 stands for 14 shows produced by some of the cities brightest and best theater artists in a mere 48 hours. From Act Theatre:
14/48 operates under a simple premise: gather some of Seattle’s most daring theater artists and put them in a pressure cooker. But the challenge is far from simple, and that is 14 plays written, cast, directed, rehearsed, scored, designed, and premiered in 48 hours. Since 1997, 14/48: TWQTF has premiered over 800 new works, many of which have gone on to repeat productions, and forged lasting relationships throughout the artistic community.
Furthermore, performances run 1 hour and 40 minutes with one intermission. Catch two shows on Friday and Saturday, at 8pm or 10:30pm.
