*SHORT+SWEET DELHI 2013* Welcome to the world of Short+Sweet Theatre Delhi 2013. A creative world created within 10 minutes on the stage!! *To read current news and see updates on the festival*, "click here": Held annually in New Delhi, the festival has already helped launch the careers of countless theatre professionals. Each year Short+Sweet Theatre presents the best ten minute plays from local and international writers in our festivals, utilizing the talents of the best young and established directors, actors and technical personnel to create some of the best theatre in the capital. *SHORT+SWEET* Short+Sweet Theatre starts with an annual call for submissions from playwrights and Independent Theatre Companies (ITCs). Each year we receive around 2000 scripts and submissions. Scripts are then evaluated by Short+Sweet Theatre’s assessors. A shortlist of the best works entered is prepared. The selected directors then select one play each to direct and actors audition for roles through our open auditions, held post summer. The Festival has a five stage process. It is kicked off with a Curtain Raiser that includes the best of the previous years' productions. Subsequently, workshops are held in the fields of script writing, direction and acting by masters in the field, with showcase productions on the final day. A few weeks later the scripts arrive from Short+Sweet headquarters, as well original submissions from India, which are then chosen by the selected directors. Subsequently, actor auditions are held. These activities finally lead to the Festival, that runs over two weekends at different venues. The first day of each weekend showcases the Top 20, which are plays directed by established directors. Followed by the Wild Card submissions by newcomers and the last day of week 2 is the Gala Final, with the announcement of awards. Each day has industry professionals as judges who select the top ten from roughly 50 plays, out of which awards are given out to the best play, the best script, the best actor and actress and the best director, at the Gala Final. Previous Festival Directors were Alex Broun (2010, 2011) and Deepak Dhamija (2012). Short+Sweet 2013 team comprises of the Executive Producer, Sohaila Kapur, the Director, Prashant Sehgal and team members, Neeraj Yadav & Jyotsna Sharma.
