14/48 Leicester – Friday 20th and Saturday 21st November 2015

The 14/48 Festival, The World’s Quickest Theatre Festival, returns to The Y Theatre, Leicester on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st November 2015!



It’s an opportunity for audiences to see 14 new plays which have been written, rehearsed, designed and performed in a 48 hour period! That’s 7 different plays each night!

November’s 14/48 will be the fifth time the 14/48 festival has taken place at The Y Theatre, following previous festivals in May 2013, March & November 2014 and May 2015.

There was also 14/48 Takeover at The Y on Saturday 30th May 2015, four new plays written by children and young people assisted by professional writers in the week leading up to the 30th May performance as part of The Spark Festival.

And 14/48 is now happening in Wolverhampton and London with inaugural festivals in June and August this year!

In the lead up to November’s 14/48 we also have Theatre Anonymous coming to The Y in October, of which more soon …

Theatre Anonymous is coming!

So 14 plays in 48 hours sounds crazy, yeah? Hows about rehearsing a full length play, without the cast ever meeting until they are on stage. In character. In front of a live audience.

As part of the Festival of Rugby, 14/48 UK are staging John Godber’s ‘Up N Under’ in just this way. It’s called Theatre Anonymous, and given the physical nature of the play (a rugby match is re-enacted in Act 2!) it’s going to be interesting.

Even better, tickets are FREE! That’s right… Leicester City Council have funded the event as part of a cultural programme for the Festival of Rugby, and they want to encourage both Leicester folk, and visitors to the city to come along to as many cultural experiences as possible.
