The 14/48 Projects is collaborating for the sixth consecutive year with Café Nordo, Seattle’s homegrown masters of innovative dinner theater, to present 14/48: Nordo – Food Theater Thunderdome in Nordo’s Culinarium.


Two weekends, two different artistic teams, two unique experiences.

14/48: Nordo combines the pressure-cooker of The World’s Quickest Theater Festival with the immersive experience and culinary excellence of Café Nordo.


On the Sunday night of each week, four playwrights are paired with four chefs, given a random ingredient and a common theme, a randomly selected director, and a randomly drawn cast.

They will have four days to write, rehearse, prepare recipes, and serve audiences the fruits of their labors on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights: four plays interwoven with a four-course meal
