Launched to provide voice to the unique challenges facing South Florida’s large divergent community, Shorts Gone Wild consists of short, provocative, funny and thoroughly entertaining plays that are tailored to explore the values, issues and humor that are relevant to the LGBT and Progressive communities. Shorts Gone Wild is a response to an outcry, which opens space for empathy while building bridges between different communities to promote social justice. This production provides an opportunity for theatergoers to address social issues through a creative process, by engaging in respectful and meaningful dialogue about the many cultural and sexual identities of others within our communities to promote tolerance and acceptance. Named as the outstanding LGBT Theatre piece of the season, Producing Artistic Director John Manzelli received the 2013 Silver Palm Award for Theatrical Excellence for the creation of Shorts Gone Wild.
