Little Fish Theatre has opened the New Year with their own special brand of theatrical creativity, the 11th annual edition of Pick of the Vine.
The selection of short plays are picked from hundreds submitted through the year, chosen by the players themselves and presented in an evening of excitement, romance and hilarity.
There is one play of the eight chosen, Disconnections by Peter Kennedy, which takes a look at the last phone conversations of three people on the doomed airplane that crashed into a field in Pennsylvania Sept. 11. The others are light-hearted, romantic, even raucously, comic. All together they are a demonstration that playwriting is still a living, breathing art-form.
Tickets are $27. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. through Feb.16. Additional performances are Feb. 3 at 2 p.m., and Feb. 6 and 7 at 8 p.m.
