14/48 -- the world's quickest theater festival -- is 14 plays conceived, written, designed, scored, rehearsed and performed in 48 hours. The combination of deadline, talent, speed, nerves and genius inspiration serve to strip away the creative inhibitions from more traditional theater, proving that, contrary to popular opinion, sometimes the first idea is the best. 14/48 involves more than 75 artists per weekend. Artistic participation is by invitation only and is predicated on the most rigorous professional standards.
Our dedicated audience accepts the possibility of failure and often is rewarded with miraculous success. Either way, they are provided with an unique insight into the creation of exciting performance art.
"The untamed results provide a swift rebuttal to any who think theatre is too contrived." -- Seattle Weekly
"A punishing artistic exercise in speed and endurance" -- The Stranger
"A kind of theatrical marathon race that emphasizes spontaneity, chance and adrenaline over contemplation and revision" -- Seattle Times
"The best argument for going to see 14/48 is that it can only exist in a city like Seattle." -- Seattle P-I
