The hit public radio and podcast series returns to the Barclay with a program of dazzling short fiction performed live by stars of stage and screen.

It's story time...for adults. Spellbinding short stories by established and emerging writers take on a new life. Uncharted Territories explores what happens when we find ourselves in an unfamiliar landscape with no map—literally and figuratively! 

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.
