Short+Sweet Theatre 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 2015 will showcase new and established artists on the stages of the New Theatre, Newtown and in the Fusebox of The Factory, Marrickville! See the Festival Schedule below for more details.

HOW IT WORKS
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.
