  "I think anybody who takes the trouble to write what we refer to as a serious play is holding a mirror up to people, saying: 'Look, this is the way you behave, this is who you are.  If you don't like it, why don't you change?'"
                 -Edward Albee
                                1979

IT COULD ONLY BE THE SHORTS!!!

     sUBVERsIVE sHORTs -- one of the only showcases for new short American political plays -- is back and stronger than ever with a whole new batch of brand spankin' new shorts by radical playwrights from all across the Country!  
     This year's showcase features eleven powerful shorts taking on every controversial subject you could ask for.  With ten different directors and over thirty different actors, we couldn't fit it all into one night.  So this year's sHORTs features two separate line-ups of amazing new works playing on alternating nights.  

HERE ARE THE LINE-UPS
