Selected Shorts: For Better or Worse -
Tales of Marriage

Saturday, April 30, 2022 at 8pm

Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre


It's story time ... for adults. Spellbinding short stories by established and emerging writers take on a new life when they are performed live by stars of stage and screen. Filled with unexpected twists and turns, it’s an evening of funny, moving, and romantic tales about marriage and the bonds we share. 

In 1985, Selected Shorts was born at Symphony Space in New York City with this simple premise: great short stories performed by great actors. Flash-forward more than 35 years, and Selected Shorts is broadcast on over 150 radio stations around the country, attracting over 300,000 listeners each week through the live show and podcast. Past performers have included Catherine O'Hara, Blythe Danner, Tony Hale, among many others.

"One of the finest evenings at the theater." —Writer, David Sedaris
