We have been very busy over here the past few months! We successfully produced our first short theatre festival for our in house theatre company, The Shoe Box Company. And we're now gearing up for our first installation in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival in September! We will be putting together a devised piece called "Wild." Our cast is set and diligently working towards crafting something really special.

"If you have a short theatre piece to share, or an idea for a short theatre piece that has not yet come to fruition, submit for a spot in the 2017 Shoe Box Theatre Festival! You may be wondering if you should bother submitting your weird idea, and the answer is an emphatic yes.
