What It's About

Ami Sallee coordinates an evening of short pieces of theatrical tastiness, including new work, by up-and-comers and old friends.

Six directors (four making their Jobsite debut) direct six plays dealing with life when rational thought and reason have “left the building.” Three of the six plays are original scripts, receiving their world premiere.

A talk-back with playwright, director and cast members will follow the Sunday performance.

Special Musical Guest: Jonathan Cho

Summer Bohnenkamp and Amy E. Gray in Short Comings: Over the Edge.
