“Connections” – Short Films Program 1

1 hour 30 mins

Connections Short Films Program 1

The Little Theatre - #5
Friday, November 13, 2015 8:00 pm


A lost child, a long–over-due coming out, a dead cat, small and large dramas in nine short films from Britain, Sweden, Australia and the US. This program is a poignant mix of tragedy and comedy that affirms the need for human connection in as concentrated a form as only short films can.


Tickets may be purchased online until 4pm on Friday Nov 13. We will have plenty of tickets available at the Little Theatre’s box office starting at 7pm.
