Comedy, romance and betrayal—Sex, murder and true love—And that’s just for starters, when SHORTER+SWEETER completes its national tour by bringing the world’s tastiest tiny theatrical treats back home to Sydney.
Short+Sweet is ‘the biggest little play festival in the world’. An original Australian product, Short+Sweet began in Sydney’s inner west and has since spread to national and international theatres. It gathers the most talented young directors and actors to produce the best and freshest local and international new short plays (“10 minutes max”) from more than a thousand entries each year.
Shorter+Sweeter showcases a selection of the very best works gathered from the most recent festivals written by Australia’s hottest young writers. Presented by some of Sydney’s finest directors and starring Sophie Cook, Alan Flower, Christine Greenough, Olivia Solomons, Johann Walraven and Heath Wilder, this ‘best of’ selection features the controversial, the rib-tickling, the absurd and the sexy in a unique 10-minute formula that is bound to please every taste.
