Arts preview: St. James Tavern Shorts Festival

St. James Tavern Shorts Festival

Few things say summer as vividly as shorts. And thus O.G. Productions has you covered, courtesy the sixth annual St. James Tavern Shorts Festival. This year's edition features six original short works (five brand new and one O.G. favorite) based on the theme "A ____ Walks Into a Bar." The fill-ins include a woman, your ex and a bear. Playwrights include David Lewison, Deborah Chava Singer and Josh Kessler. Admission is free, but the drinks aren't.
