ENERGY VAMPIRES by Patricia Crumpler - Good advice is dispensed to someone not paying attention.

CASH FLOW by Joan McIver - Who are those suspicious characters in the bank lobby?

One of the hallmarks of the Shortcuts series are these set changes, designed by director Brian Reeves, which often constitute a play within the plays. Other Shortcuts 4 directors are Joyce Sweeney, Irene Kessler, Teresa Biber and Bob Benjamin. The cast this year includes Playgroup veterans such as David Ehrlich, Penny Mandel, Paul Rosen and Barbara Weisberger, along with actors new to the show, such as Clelia Patrizio, Elli Murray and Christopher Mitchell.
