Like so many other things missed during 2020, our Short Play LAB writers were not able to see their work produced live in our annual festival.

We have waited almost a year to share these gems with the public. An in-person festival is still not possible, but before we close out the 2020-2021 Season, we can share them virtually in anticipation of welcoming audiences back to our studio before the end of the year, where they can be experienced fully realized!
