Take a Sip of City Theatre's Sparkling Shorts at Books & Book's Wine Down Wednesday on August 28th in Coral Gables! We are serving up a delicious delivery of 3 short plays (10 minutes each) to wet your whistle, while you relax, imbibe, and enjoy your evening. Starting at 7:00 pm, one short play every half hour until 8:30 pm, then get a sneak peek scene from our upcoming production of the full length play THE CAKE by Bekah Brunstetter.
Audiences have opportunities year-round
to enjoy free readings of original works submitted to us for consideration
as a Summer Short.
Regional actors perform at various locations,
particularly at well-regarded Books & Books,
the Olympia Theater's Word Series,
and CityWrights readings.
These informal, entertaining gatherings
give audiences a chance to give feedback,
and contribute to our selection process,
while allowing a work to come off the page
with the use of actors and audience members,
the two most basic ingredients necessary
for producing a play.
A number of the plays produced at
are discovered at CITY READS.
