As Irish short story writer Joseph O'Connor says, writers of short works "grab that moment with both hands and invest it with all of the power and humanity and sympathy we can." From the particular to the universal, the supremely funny to the sublimely profound, the amusingly diverting to the distressingly significant, please join us in the Black Box Theatre for an evening of some of the best new (short) writing in America. Be surprised when you step into the "Box!" $10 for adults; $8 for seniors and non-McLennan students
