SUNFLOWER SHORTS
A 10-MINUTE PLAY FESTIVAL

The Backstory:     Everything was set:  out of 41 play submissions, 10 were chosen for production in June 2020; directors were signed up and auditions were about to be held.

 

Then, WHAM! Life was changed by the COVID pandemic. “But the show must go on!” And it did, with production on September 24 and 25, 2021, 7:00 p.m. both nights.
