TheatreRats Hosts 3rd Annual Short Play Fest. 9/27-30
TheatreRats will proudly present the 3rd Annual Chester Horn Short Play Festival, featuring the award-winning directors and playwrights from last year's event, as well as a host of new talent from across the country. The Festival will showcase twelve 10-15 minute plays at the Medicine Show Theatre, 549 West 52nd St (between 10 & 11 Aves) from September 27-30. The festival is performed in two series, each with 6 shows.
"With submissions from as far away as Australia and Ireland, and selections from across the country, TheatreRats is striving to continue its tradition of playing to full houses and showcasing some of the best short theater written today. Again this year, the Festival will include top-notch pieces from authors who've been produced around the world," state press notes, "The festival takes its name from Ruby's grandfather, the late Chester Horn, whose generous support enabled TheatreRats to create a venue for writers, directors and artists to collaborate and celebrate theatre."
