Summer Shorts returns for another summer of new American one-acts featuring original plays by the country's top playwrights. Representing some of today's best writing, directing and acting talents, Summer Shorts celebrates theatre, summer and the short form. The festival's two separate series offer a diverse range of voices, styles, and subject matter. Summer Shorts 4 offers eight world premiere one-act plays, in two separate evenings. The two series will run in rotating repertory. The New York Post declared "one-act shorts fit nicely in summer heat!"
Featured will be eight World Premieres from some of New York's finest established and emerging playwrights, including Jonathan's Blaze by Christopher Stetson Boal, directed by José Angel Santana; Play With The Penguin by Roger Hedden, directed by Billy Hopkins; The Graduation Of Grace by Wendy Kesselman, director TBA; Fit by Neil Koenigsberg, directed by Merri Milwe; Romance by Neil LaBute, directed by Dolores Rice; The Expenses Of Rain by Deb Margolin, directed by Laura Barnett; An Actor Prepares by Timothy Mason, directed by Maxwell Williams; Happy by Alan Zweibel, directed by Fred Berner.
