14/48 is like Russian roulette. You never know what you're going to get. And booze is usually involved. Dozens of artists bang out 14 short plays in 48 hours, seven performed on Friday, another seven performed on Saturday. This weekend's participants include some quality writers (Brendan Healy, Stephanie Timm, et al.), directors (Brian Faker, Paul Budraitis, et al.), actors (Brandon Whitehead, Imogen Love, et al.), plus designers and the 14/48 band. It's fast, sloppy fun under the gun. (Theatre Off Jackson, 409 Seventh Ave S, www.brownpapertickets.com. 8 and 10:30 pm, $20. Through Aug 7.)
