Presented by Short+Sweet and Perth Theatre Trust 

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 20 years ago and now presented in multiple countries across the globe. Though it took some time to get to Perth, it arrived with a bang in 2021 and is back again this year! Some 50 plays in the regular season, all vying to go through to the finals, based on judging and the audience vote.

This year we will again showcase the exciting talent of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) Diploma of Acting cohort. Don’t miss the WAAPA weekend! And, for the first time in Perth, we are proud to run a program of Short+Sweet for Schools - presenting high school dramatic talent (mostly Year 10) on the Subiaco Arts Centre stage.

Come and meet the stars of the future! 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.

  • Latecomers will not be admitted until a suitable break during the performance.
