"Short and bittersweet" could be the theme of this festival showcasing nine of the short plays and memoirs of the great Sam Shepard. One of America's most talented and popular playwrights of the past five decades -- and a great actor as well -- he won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was nominated for an Oscar as an actor. Over two programs (each ticketed separately), six directors will present nine of Shepard's works, each backed by live music from a different band each night. The plays scheduled to be presented in Series A are The War in Heaven, The Curse of the Raven's Black Feather, Hail from Nowhere, Just Space, Rhythm and Evanescence, or Shakespeare in the Alley. Series B will include Savage/Love, Tongues and Cowboys #2. Learn More

The comedy was funny, and the drama was convincing. The theater itself is comfortable and we had no difficulty hearing every word of the play. This ensemble really worked well together. No one player dominated the stage, and each character was well developed and played their role to the hilt. We really enjoyed the 90 minutes.

“Casella is at his best when he’s going for laughs. He gets a lot of them.”—New York Times
Written by Martin Casella
Size matters to Joseph Flaherty, Stephen Fitzgerald, Rick Baldwin and Kevin Shaunessy. This small group of Irish- American men (all professionally successful New Yorkers) meet every Wednesday night, in a Catholic church basement, at a self-help group for men with small penises. This allegedly Irish trait is the focus of their weekly whining and bitching as they feel this “shortcoming” has ruined their lives.
