Playwright Steadman has new work in short play festival

Susan Steadman, formerly of Offshoot Productions which was based in Fayette County, has a short play in Onion Man Productions’ short play festival, “Life is Short,” running Thursday-Saturday June 9-12 in Norcross.

Steadman’s play, “New Age Farewells, Inc.” is about the sparks that fly when three strangers - a churchwoman, a stripper and an art historian with twin infants, have a bizarre encounter at a high-tech funeral home.

The festival, which features nine short plays, will take place at Lionheart Theatre in Norcross. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for seniors. Phone 404-519-7591 or visit www.onionmanproductions.com for more information.
