City Theatre and Island City Stage are proud to present the return of Shorts Gone Wild 2, South Florida’s hottest short play festival that celebrates the LGBT and Progressive communities, from August 7 – September 7 at Empire Stage in Ft. Lauderdale.

Conceived and created by Island City Stage Artistic Director Andy Rogow and City Theatre Producing Artistic Director John Manzelli, Shorts Gone Wild 2 takes six actors, seven playwrights, five directors and a design team, and whips them up until they peak into eight short, provocative, funny and thoroughly entertaining plays with a LGBT bent. Winner of the 2014 Silver Palm Award for Best LGBT Theatre show, Shorts Gone Wild is the newest collaboration under City Theatre’s SUMMER SHORTS FESTIVAL umbrella. Back by popular demand, Shorts Gone Wild 2 features brand new, never performed plays written by local South Florida playwrights.

Lion in a Bear Bar by Michael McKeever
Sarah Stein Sends a Selfie by Michael McKeever
I Alone by Christopher Demos-Brown
The Emperor Is Naked! by Michael Leeds
The Last Time I Saw Bathhouse Betty by Tony Finstrom
