Three extraordinary playwrights. Three world premieres. One night only!

Join Playing On Air for a live recording of three short plays on the main stage of Playwrights Horizons. Witness theater as it morphs to radio and podcast! Help Playing On Air's mission to deliver high-quality theater to every American for free and on demand.

From a retirement home for Hollywood animated characters to the outskirts of activism, this year’s short plays tackle questions of fame, age, privilege, security and electric light. We’ll create an audio theater experience on the spot, ready for broadcast, complete with a talk-back with the playwrights, actors, directors, moderated by our artistic producer, Claudia Catania.

This year’s short plays:

WOKE by Leland Frankel with Tracee Chimo, Craig Mums Grant, Debargo Sanyal directed by Mimi O’Donnell
GUN SHOW by David Auburn with Bobby Cannavale, Eisa Davis, Lucy DeVito, Martha Plimpton, Jeremy Shamos directed by Wendy Goldberg
EVENING AT ANAHEIM by acclaimed New Yorker cartoonist James Stevenson with Emily Bergl, Carson Elrod, Richard Kind, Peter Maloney, Tom Allan Robbins, Brandon Uranowitz, Karen Ziemba, directed by Dana Ivey
