      Selected Shorts: A Surprising Night of Shorts

      Peter Jay Sharp Theatre

      You never know what might happen at a Surprising Night of Shorts. Previous Surprising Nights have included evenings with Alice Munro, Chuck Palahniuk, and John Irving.

      Featuring a reading of the 2020 Stella Kupferberg Memorial Short Story Prize-winning story!

      Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

      Recent readers include Ellen Burstyn, Kate Walsh, Bebe Neuwirth, Claire Danes, Michael Shannon, Kyle Maclachlan, LeVar Burton, Jane Curtin, Danielle Brooks, Cynthia Nixon, Rainn Wilson, Holly Hunter, Hugh Dancy, Joan Allen, Josh Radnor, Tony Shalhoub, Maggie Gyllenhaal, BD Wong and more.

      Actors subject to change. Casting and special guests will be announced on our website so check for up-to-date information.
