Blink and you'll miss one. Watch small-scale stage plays, comedy sketches, and films in quick doses in a package perfect for ADHD theatergoers. There are musical spoofs, dramatic scenes, and commercial breaks that are as diverse as their PG-13 audience.

Short plays with a long history. Short Attn Span Thtr was created 12 years ago by mother-and-son team Sheri Grace Wenger and Ryan Ahlert. The hit was recently revived in their intimate black box space on James Island. The current SAST team includes Ahlert (Reefer Madness, The Philadelphia Story), Javar White (Rock 'n' Roll Heaven) and Husain Williams (A Raisin in the Sun).

A bite-sized best of — and more. "Most of the material has been original and has embraced the more absurd, edgy, and sometimes darker side of comedy," Ahlert says. Piccolo's SAST will include audience favorites from previous productions, but the bulk of the show will be brand new.
