Under the Surface


Under The Surface

Two stories with hidden emotions that are rising fast.


On this SELECTED SHORTS, hosted by Jane Kaczmarek, we explore emotions and secrets that rise to the surface unexpectedly. In Patrick Dacey’s “Patriots,” suburban lawn ornaments stand for something larger, and threaten a friendship. The gifted actor Wendie Malick brings out all the subtexts. Seth Fried is a writer who nudges ordinary life in unexpected directions. In his “Sea Monster,” a wife has a secret that may affect her marriage. This visceral tale is smoothly rendered by Natasha Rothwell. Host Jane Kaczmarek reads our final story. In “Mistress” by Gina Berriault, a woman meets her former lover’s son.
