Swim Shorts 3: Are You In?  | Open: 07/18/07 Close: 08/12/07
Presented by Joe Cecala and Impetuous Theater Group, SWIM SHORTS 3: ARE YOU IN? is a site-specific short play theater festival inspired by the greatest summer invention of all time, the swimming pool. Originally presented in 2002 and 2003, the festival returns just in time to beat global warming. As the sun sets over Manhattan, the plays unfold around the Holiday Inn Midtown's picturesque rooftop pool. Stick around after the show to swim under the stars.

SWIM SHORTS 3: ARE YOU IN? boasts new short plays by some of today's up-and-coming indie playwrights -- Eric Walton, creator of the Off Broadway sensation Esoterica; renowned performance artist Roi "Bubi" Escudero; Brian MacInnis Smallwood; Seth Kramer and Janet Zarecor among others.
