Featuring the work of up and coming as well as beloved playwrights, the Summer Shorts Festival is a theatrical smorgasbord. The festival, running July 19 to August 31, features roughly six premiere short plays, 20 - 30 minutes in length, presented as two separate series at 59E59 Theaters (59 East 59th Street) in Manhattan.
Plays being shown include:
Interior (Written by Nick Payne, Directed by Rory McGregor)
It is a seemingly normal day for a small family in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. Two men convene outside. The actions they choose to take in just a few short moments will change the course of this family's life forever.
Lucky (Written by Sharr White, Directed by J.J. Kandel)
What's the first thing you say after six years? Just on the outskirts of town, in room 11B of The Royale Motor Lodge, Phil Granger is stripping off his wet shirt as Meredith, his wife, is rushing through the rain towards him. Lucky is the moment they meet.
Here I Lie (Written by Courtney Baron, Directed by Maria Mileaf)
Strangers Maris and Joseph, a young editor and a nurse, collide in this play about what it means to exercise compassion and self-care, in the face of hardship
