Selected Shorts

"Thirty years ago, Selected Shorts was born and quickly became one of the best known national shows of its kind with a popular public radio show, podcast, annual CD collections, digital downloads, and national tours. The series was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance" (see citation below*).
Each of the following selections runs approximately 3 hours long, divided among 3 audio discs (with the exception of Poe! - 2.5 hours on 2 discs). They are all edited and published by Symphony Space, with various authors for each collection of short stories.
