14/48: Austin

14/48 Austin: Game On 10/17/2014

14/48: The World’s Quickest Theater Festival returns to Austin in October 2016

What is 14/48: The World’s Quickest Theater Festival?

Seven world-premiere plays are written, cast, directed, rehearsed, scored, designed, and performed (twice!) in 24 hours. Then we do it all over again the next night with seven totally new scripts. It’s exhausting, exhilarating, and totally wild. As an artist, you get the chance to take crazy, wonderful risks and work with fellow theater-makers, designers, and musicians from all parts of the Austin performance world.

As an audience member… well, just buckle your seat belt.

14/48: TWQTF has been running bi-yearly for 16 years in Seattle. We proudly launched the Austin version in 2014 and more than proved to the folks up north just how daring and weird our city in the south can be.
