Vashon Center for the Arts hosts world’s quickest theater festival


Vashon Center for the Arts and Open Space for Arts and Community continue their collaboration, with the production of “14/48 Vashon: The World’s Quickest Island Theater Festival” slated for the weekend of Oct. 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? During 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 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.

When: Friday, Oct. 19, 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Performances of the first seven plays
Saturday, Oct. 20, 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Performances of the second set of seven plays
Where: All shows at Vashon Center for the Arts
19600 Vashon Hwy. SW, Vashon
Cost: $10-$18 for the 7 p.m. shows.
A suggested donation of $12 for the 9 p.m. shows
