For several years now, Spokane’s Stage Left Theater has hosted an annual theater event called Fast & Furious, and while it doesn’t boast any automotive heists starring Vin Diesel, it is a high-speed good time. Although the series is going virtual this year, it’s following the same concept that local theater fans should be familiar with: You get to see a bunch of abbreviated plays, each running only a couple minutes apiece and performed in rapid succession. 2021’s installment features 22 individual playlets submitted by writers from all over the country and performed at breakneck speed by a group of Stage Left actors. Writers weren’t given any constraints beyond length, so expect all kinds of styles, tones and topics. The show will be streaming live and is free to watch, but viewers will need to preregister first — see the theater’s Facebook feed for links and details.
