It is always hard to find a place to showcase your longer short play (26 - 50 minutes.)  Many short play events only accept plays up to 20 minutes, and the ones that host longer short plays book up fast.  So what do you do with your longer short play?

Manhattan Rep's SHORT PLAY PROJECT may be the answer for you

We supply the technician for lights and sound.  We supply the poster and the ticketing pages.
We curate, organize and orchestrate the program with 1 or 2 other longer short plays (26-50 minutes.)
And we supply our beautiful new theatre space on West 45th St. right in the middle of the of Broadway and more!
