This is what you can expect from Short Attention Span Theatre’s newest production:

• “One Word” by Constance H. Marse, directed by Millie Fisher, is about a young couple who are learning the dance of relationships — a movement in which every word counts.

• “Ori and Addison” by James C. Ferguson, directed by Fisher, is all about the foibles of fatherhood.

• “Simple Pleasures” by Peter Snoad, with direction by Mnemosyne Heileman, focuses on a woman who attempts to balance her base needs with the circus of every day life.

• “We Have to Tell Jacob,” written by George Smart and directed by Heileman, draws the audience in to a surprising conversation between parents and their child.

• “Happy Birthday,” written by Philip J. Kaplan and directed by Sadie Hight, is the story of Noah’s parents’ efforts to get him out of the nest in the most unique and gruesome ways.

• “Make-a-Match” by Constance H. Marse, with direction by Hight, is the story of friends Harriet and Lucy, their interest in online dating and Harriet’s granddaughter’s horrified reaction to the possibility.
