Playing on Air is a unique public radio program featuring a novel form of story-telling, the short play. It's a genre, virtually unknown, but ideal for the rhythms of radio listeners. Featuring actors such as Actors Bobby Cannavale, Audra McDonald, Rosie Perez, Adam Driver, John Leguizamo, Michelle Williams, Jesse Eisenberg performing scripts by the finest contemporary playwrights including many Pulitzer Prize, Tony and Oscar winners. Masters of the form, they write pieces that, like all great theater, entertain, illuminate, inform and humanize. Each short is about 12-25 minutes. There are two or three of them on every 53-minute episode. And each is immediately followed by a lively conversation with its playwright, director, and cast.
