Embracing Change

HOST: Meg Wolitzer


Host Meg Wolitzer presents three stories about change: a playful fantasy, a domestic dilemma, and a private struggle all help us to adjust to the idea of transformation, losses, and gains. In “Sea Monster” by Seth Fried, performed by Natasha Rothwell, a husband and wife reveal their secret identities to each other. In “Death by Printer” by Mira Jacob, performed by Rita Wolf, a widow learns to cope with loss—and technology. And a mature woman embraces the self she is becoming in Maile Meloy’s “Period Piece,” performed by Kelli O’Hara. The last two stories were commissioned for Selected Shorts’ anthology Small Odysseys.
