An Audience-Judged Theater Competition With a $5,000 Prize

Pushing the limits of theatrical possibility, ShortLived is a marathon American Idol-esque race to a $5,000 check and eternal Bay Area glory. This year's audience-judged competition features 48 short plays running over the course of 8 weeks, and then a winner-take-all finals on Sept. 6 and 7. If you want to take a dip into the rampant creativity of Bay Area theater—and see some fun, charming competition along the way—you can't do much better than this.

While the real fun is in the preliminary rounds, running at PianoFight's main stage, you can always hop on the bandwagon for the cutthroat finals at ACT's Strand Theater on Sept. 6 and 7.
