TSR presents: Selected Shorts

Friday, July 14
7:30 PM - Avram Theater

Selected Shorts comes to Stony Brook Southampton with an evening of funny, moving, romantic, and surreal tales filled with unexpected twists and turns. Blythe Danner, Richard Kind, Maulik Pancholy, and Betty Buckley will perform magical short stories by authors featured in the Southampton Review.

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes.

The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.
