The World’s Quickest Theater Festival Returns to Vashon

14/48 Vashon: The World’s Quickest Theater Festival is back! Featuring the creative magic of 7 writers, 7 directors, over 25 actors, plus a slew of designers, musicians, and technical geniuses, this fly by the seat of your pants event amazes, delights and surprises audiences every time.

On Thursday night, this group of fearless creators gathers and throws themes into a hat. A theme is drawn and 7 writers head home to write 7 brand new 10-minute plays overnight. The next day, 7 directors draw the play they will direct, then they draw their cast, and then they get to work: those 7 new plays are rehearsed, designed and scored throughout the day and performed twice on Friday night… and then the whole process happens again. And thus, 14 new plays are born and performed in just 48 hours. It’s theatrical madness of an incredibly creative sort.

This year’s list of artists is a who’s who of Vashon talent, plus some accomplished friends and collaborators from across the water.

Based in Seattle since 1997, The 14/48 Projects is an internationally known organization that uses “unconventional structures to create events that strengthen the artistic community & transcend audience expectations.” The Festival is presented by Open Space for Arts & Community with support from Vashon Center for the Arts and will be presented in The Grand Hall at Open Space for Arts and Community Grand Hall, Friday & Saturday, January 19-20, 2023. Don’t miss it!
