ROOTS: An Evening of World Premiere Shorts is an evening of four wonderfully strange world premiere short plays – written by four accomplished Theatre of NOTE-grown playwrights – which together usher audiences through the complexity of the human condition.

A dark comedy for dark times unfolds at a wedding. (Deadpan) A one-night stand takes a Kafkaesque turn. (The Smell of Something to Eat) Siblings and a significant other learn they probably definitely love each other, as they encounter tectonic distress. (Big Ones) Escaping Soviet Russia, a young woman goes on to found modern conservative philosophy before becoming the subject of her own musical theater production (Rand!)

Everyone has their own journey, but we all start at our ROOTS.
