Unconventional Short Shorts

How The Evening Works:

Performers will be randomly assigned original monologues to read from a collection of works by local playwrights. The evening will continue until all of the monologues have been read, we run out of willing performers, or the venue kicks us out. 


How to Participate: 

  • As Audience: enjoy some cider and a show.

  • As Playwright: bring one or more original 2-minute monologues. Stuck?

  • As Performer: bring yourself and be ready for anything. 

(We encourage participation as all three)

Unconventional Shorts is a platform for artist connection and new script development. Each Unconventional Shorts event will feature different short form performances. Some will involve new work created via prompts provided by Theatre Crude. Some will involve works in progress from emerging local playwrights. Others may involve cabaret style performances from local artists looking to show off and flex their talent in front of a live audience.

Unconventional Shorts is an audience development program. It introduces audiences to never before seen work in a short form and at no upfront cost (the event is available to attend via suggested donation instead of a fixed ticket price) so that they will be less intimidated when we ask them to attend long form new work at our annual Theatre Crude Fringe Festival. 

Unconventional Shorts is a live performance event series that serves as a fundraiser for Theatre Crude.
