Genre: Comedy, Drama, Musical, Festival
A vibrant new collection of short plays produced by award-winning The Shalimar

"THE MOST EXCITING YOUNG AMERICAN COMPANY I HAVE SEEN UP HERE SO FAR THIS CENTURY!" â€" The Financial Times

Award-winning, innovative theater company The Shalimar presents a thrilling evening of brand new short plays and full scale musical numbers -- You People (Short Plays about Those People). Emerging playwrights Nastaran Ahmadi, Princess Grace statue winner Michael John Garcés, Hilly Hicks, Jr., Josh Liveright, Sharyn Rothstein; and Tommy Smith riff on what it means to be "the other" in America today. What happens when we attempt to shine a light on the outsider and end up finding ourselves?

The Shalimar received the Best Ensemble award at the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe Festival for its production, LA FEMME EST MORTE or Why I Should Not F%!# My Son. The show was heralded "a loud and furious blast of pure pop entertainment" by The Stage and "a must see" by The List.
