Broadway World: Week Two Winner Revealed For The Players Theatre Short Play Festival

This past weekend saw West Village audiences gathering to enjoy 5 original short plays about life in New York during Week 2 of the 13th annual Players Theatre NYC Short Play Festival. Each weekend for three weeks in June, a new selection of 15-minute original plays premieres to reflect on life in the Big Apple.

Last weekend’s audience-selected winner was “Married Strangers”, written and directed by Alan CordoBa-Diaz.

In this short play, a married couple decide to finally have a date in the city for the first time since the pandemic. To spice things up, Jim (Mark Stephen Kopas) decides on a game of strangers at the bar with his wife, Karen (Veronica Murphy). Sadly, it doesn’t go at all according to plan. The bartender, Cole (Hunter Corbett), offers comic relief that takes some of the sting out of the situation.
