Playsmiths presents Flashfest on June 15th at the Manhattan Theatre Club on West 43rd Street in New York, New York. Flashfest consists of one-minute plays, monologues, flash fiction, hint fiction and poetry. Included in this fast-paced evening of entertainment are Stacey Lane’s plays Shelter Skelter, The Unwelcome Mat and The Author's Autopsy. In Shelter Skelter, a woman visits an animal shelter to pick out a kitten, but the ghost of her recently deceased cat interrupts and is not ready to be replaced. In The Unwelcome Mat, while a young lady waits for her date to answer his door, she strikes up a conversation with his bitter doormat who knows too much. In The Author's Autopsy, coroners try to figure out the cause of a writer’s untimely demise. For more about the show, go to www.playsmiths.org. For tickets, visit www.brownpapertickets.com.
