HotHouse Shorts

The HotHouse Shorts, created by the Wilma’s acclaimed acting company, are free to the public, though donations are encouraged to support our company and the Wilma’s ongoing work. These shorts are as varied in style as they are in content, reflecting both the diversity of passions and variety of talents of local Philadelphia artists. 

Three shorts are currently available. Additional Shorts will be released later this season.
