14/48 Heads North to a New Venue: The World's Quickest Theater Festival at Stage One Theater

The 14/48 Projects adds yet another venue to the list for 14/48: The World's Quickest Theater Festival, taking their signature festival to Stage One Theater at North Seattle College July 28 & 29 and August 4 & 5, 2017.

14/48: The World's Quickest Theater Festival 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.

And while this is the first time the festival has been produced at Stage One Theater, it is not the first production there for The 14/48 Projects. During a two-year residency at North Seattle College, The 14/48 Projects produced numerous Partner Projects in Stage One Theater (including Centrifuge 2 with Infinity Box Theater Project and Woyzcek with Seattle Theatre Works), in addition to 14/48: HS and 14/48: Takeover, a recent co-production with 14/48 UK. "It's a venue we're familiar with," says The 14/48 Projects Executive Director Shawn Belyea, "but which might be new for some of our audience. Stage One is a little farther north, but is a great theater with a lot of history and a lot of free parking."

14/48: The World's Quickest Theater Festival. July 28 & 29 and August 4 & 5, 2017 at 8:00pm and 10:30pm. Stage One Theater at North Seattle College - 9600 College Way N, Seattle, WA 98103. Tickets: http://click4tix.com/1448Fest

The 14/48 Projects: Season Four

The 14/48 Projects is in the middle of its fourth season producing 14/48: The World's Quickest Theater Festival, Theater Anonymous, and other collaborative artistic events. The 14/48 Projects continues to develop an international network of 14/48 Festivals, and recently partnered with 14/48: UK for 14/48: Takeover with professional artists producing scripts written by students simultaneously in three locations in the US and Great Britain. We continue to support 14/48: HS, an entirely student-run festival, and are in the middle of a four-year production agreement with ACT Theater, making our signature festival a cornerstone of the ACTLab program. Our Partner Project program continues to support new work by festival veterans all around Seattle, most recently Infinity Box Theater Projects' Centrifuge 2. The 14/48 Projects is led by President Jodi-Paul Wooster and Executive Director Shawn Belyea.
