Short+Sweet – the festival of tasty short theatre bites – returns this summer with all-new short plays to tempt and delight Sydney audiences!

The 14th annual festival of the world’s biggest festival of 10-minute plays runs from January 7 to March 15 at two inner west venues: New Theatre, Newtown and the Fusebox Theatre at the Factory in Marrickville.

The 8-week program changes weekly and plays Wednesday-Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons. Plus the Wildcard performances on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and Monday nights.

Theatre Festival Director Pete Malicki – taking the helm of his fourth consecutive fest – said the Short+Sweet family was thrilled to be moving to bigger and better homes at the New Theatre and the Fusebox.

“We’re pumped for this exciting new chapter in Short+Sweet’s Sydney history,” he said.

Alana Teasdale will be the Festival Coordinator , Luke Middlebrook as Production Manager and Terrance Maxwell will be the lighting designer .

More than 160 short plays, chosen from more than 1200 entries from all over Australia and internationally – including the winners from various local and national competitions – will showcase the talents of around 800 writers, directors and actors.

As always, said Pete, the ‘magical alchemy’ of Short+Sweet will see up-and-coming talent mixing with the ‘greats’ of our industry such as AFI-nominated filmmaker Serhat Caradee (writer/director of Cedar Boys). Returning veteran writers and directors include Carol Dance, Felix Carlyle, Aishveryaa Nidhi, Aaron Nilan, Brett Heath, Joy Roberts, Dona Parise, Tom Green, James Hartley, Craig Delahoy, Vee Malnar, Kaz Getts and Jessica Fallico. New talent includes emerging 17-year-old playright Matthew Friedman.

“Short+Sweet is an invaluable opportunity for artists to showcase their work, network, find an audience, develop their craft and have a great time. This year audiences will enjoy every style, genre and story imaginable.”

This year the theatre festival is followed up by two all-new festivals: Short+Sweet Bollywood from 9-22 March at The Fusebox and Short+Sweet Voices (a cappella ensemble singing!) 3-21 March the Concourse in Chatswood.
