Ethan McGuire & Alfonso Giansanti in Doug Kmiotek's The Family Jewels at The Playwright's Loft III.  Directed by Steven Russo.


Steven co-founded Slingshot Theater Company in 2017 with three other theatrical colleagues.  Essentially, Slingshot is a collective of theater artists that develop and produce bold, brand new plays by budding playwrights.   Aimed at cultivating a laboratory where brazen, unexpected, and fearless theater can take place, Slingshot is dedicated to engaging audiences with fresh and simply entertaining contemporary stories.


The Playwright’s Loft, Slingshot’s flagship 10-minute play festival, was also created in 2017.  The festival aims to present several shows throughout the year highlighting original works by diverse, young, and burgeoning playwrights.
