    Thanks for including Little Fish Theatre in your list! We also produce two short play festivals a year. “Twisted, Spooky, Creepy” featured a script by Nina Mansfield, and we just closed “Pick of the Vine” where we produced short plays by Robin Rothstein, Chris Shaw Swanson, Anne Maria Newsome, and Nina Mansfield.
