The Shelterbelt Theatre’s 13th year of staging new romance-themed short plays, leading up to Valentine’s Day, delivers a relatively short program. Never sticky-sweet, it ranges from bittersweet to broadly funny.

Just six scripts were chosen for “From Shelterbelt With Love 13,” even though more than 160 were submitted. The result is a 70-minute, intermissionless show that touches on death, abuse, impotence, reincarnation, family dynamics, a sci-fi future and, just for fun, a dash of silly in which kitchen objects come to life.
