Q: What Does the World’s Quickest Theater Festival Look Like?

A: A whole lot of fun.

Large groups of theater artists meet periodically to plan, write, rehearse, and produce seven brand-new 10-minute plays in 24 hours—truly: they choose a theme at 8 p.m. on a Thursday and open at 8 p.m. on Friday. And then they do it all over again the next night with a new theme. It is called 14/48, and if you’re in the vicinity of Seattle this weekend, you can experience for yourself the fruits of this imaginative practice. There are two shows on Friday and two on Saturday. Tickets are only $20.
