Short+Sweet Sydney 2015

Short+Sweet Sydney is the largest festival of 10 minute plays in the world!

Now into its fourteenth year, Short+Sweet is moving to an exciting new location and will be bringing you over 160 brand new scripts from Australian and international writers, put together by the best up-and-coming and established directors and performed by veteran actors and fresh new talent.

Short+Sweet Sydney stages around 160 plays, each put in the hands of capable Sydney directors. Open to both the experienced and fresh blood, Short+Sweet enables hundreds of artists an opportunity to write, perform, develop, and direct, while encouraging audiences to see some brand new works on stage!

S+S Sydney is separated into two divisions: the Top 80 and the Wildcards.

Around 300 scripts are shortlisted from the thousands received year-round by Short+Sweet and are selected by directors. Those selected as part of the Top 80 are performed every Wednesday-Saturday night and are assessed by Judges and the audience to determine the best of the best. Wildcards are performed Saturday-Monday, with the winners of the Wildcards Finals also winning a spot in the Gala Finals.

Auditions: 25th-26th October 2014 + 8th-9th November 2014
Season - Top 80 and Wildcards: 7th January 2015 – 15th March 2015
