Presented by Perth Theatre Trust and Short + Sweet
Finally the Short+Sweet festival of 10 minute plays comes to Perth! Ten plays every night by the best of local theatre talent. Come and vote for your favourite!
Ten 10 minute plays every night to make you cheer, cry, gasp, laugh and shout - but always applaud! There's no theme - just a rollercoaster ride of great theatre by Perth's own experienced and up-and-coming writers, directors and actors.
Short+Sweet is the world's largest festival of little plays, founded in Sydney almost 20 years ago and now presented in multiple countries across the globe. Though it took some time to get to Perth, it's here with a bang! Some 40 plays, all vying to go through to the finals, based on judging and the audience vote.
Each week and weekend's program will include a new set of 10 plays. To see them all come to each program - and then see the ones you sent through at the finals!
