Pay What You Can

The Skinner Studio at Plays and Players

FRESH INK SHORTS is an intriguing, fast-paced evening of new original short plays by award-winning writers — from one-minute amuse-bouches to more elaborate courses of the comic, the poignant, and the wondrous strange. The eight to ten shorts are performed by seven talented actors, coming together in various combinations to build each new world they’ll inhabit. The individual pieces are separated by provocative sound and light cues that provide a rhythm and intensity that seamlessly move the action from one scenario to the next. From AI reaching singularity in a supermarket checkout lane, to a blistering single-word indictment of government, to musings on realizing you’re actually a God, FRESH INK SHORTS delivers a tantalizing 75 minutes of thought-provoking theater. Produced and presented by TheatreXP at the Skinner Studio at Plays and Players, 1714 Delancey Place, Philadelphia. Visit their website at for more information on this Florida Keys company newly transplanted to Philadelphia.

Appropriate for ages 13+
