Vashon Center for the Arts and Open Space for Arts & Community continue their collaboration, with the production of “14/48 Vashon: The World’s Quickest Island Theater Festival” slated for the weekend of October 19-20, at VCA’s Katherine L White Hall.
This will be the third incarnation of this community-building, chops-busting, art-generating adventure.
What is it? Over the festival weekend a never-before-assembled ensemble of island artists will collaborate to produce 14 world premiere short plays in 48 hours. Written, directed, scored, teched, and presented over one rotation of the Earth, each day sees seven plays spring up overnight, like mushrooms. United by a randomly generated theme, each group offers a unique spectrum of viewpoints on our contemporary condition. Seven writers, seven directors, musicians, designers, and dozens of actors test their craft and their courage as they race the clock to bring Vashon audiences the freshest plays of the day.
Friday, October 19th | 7 pm and 9 pm
Performances of the first seven plays
Saturday, October 20th | 7 pm and 9 pm
Performances of the second set of seven plays
