Warehouse Theater commissioned 9 of the best playwrights working today and asked them to create short pieces specifically for Warehouse actors working with Upstate directors. The result is LONG STORY SHORT: 9 Short Plays From the Longest Year Of Our Lives.

The latest Warehouse In Your House production will RUN FOR ONLY FOUR DAYS (June 11-14) and we are offering these short plays for FREE.  Donations will be graciously accepted and all proceeds will go towards ensuring The Warehouse returns ready to employ, engage, and entertain this Fall.
