14/48 -- The World's Quickest Theatre Festival
by The Vortex

Mar. 08 - Mar. 10

14/48 The World's Quickest Theatre Festival comes to Austin for its third year of wildly unexpected live performance! 

The festival, which began in Seattle over fifteen years ago, brings together artist from across Austin's theatre and performance community to create 14 world-premiere plays in 48 hours! Each night audiences will see the performance of 7 plays that have been written, cast, directed, rehearsed, scored, and designed by a company of over 50 artists in the span of only 24 hours. 

The entire process is then repeated the next day with seven new plays. Participants and audience members have the opportunity to complete the sentence: “I want to see seven ten-minute plays about _____.” One answer per night is chosen at random, and the writers spend the night crafting a play based on that theme. In the morning, directors choose scripts and casts at random. The band writes original music based on the theme, and designers build sets and find costumes.
