Short+Sweet 2012 Brisbane & Gold Coast

Short+Sweet 2012 Brisbane & Gold Coast

Short+Sweet is getting larger and juicier in Queensland.

Now in its 11th year Short+Sweet is the world's largest 10 minute play festival. The biggest little play festival actually began in the late 90s and became Short+Sweet in 2001. The Short+Sweet franchise has expanded throughout Australia in recent years and now includes festivals in Sydney, Canberra, Central New South Wales, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Rockhampton and Newcastle. Short+Sweet also has an international program with festivals in Singapore, Malaysia, Taipei, Auckland, Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai.

Short+Sweet affords budding playwrights the opportunity of seeing their work come to life on stage. Emerging actors, directors and local independent theatre companies also have the chance of being seen in a professional environment by industry experts. It's also about uncovering and developing new writers. It is now the world's largest 10-minute play festival and this year Short+Sweet presented its 1000th new Australian work, making it the largest producer of Australian theatre.

Audiences are guaranteed 10 plays a night and no play will last more than 10 minutes; with attention spans shrinking this is great news. Everyone loves a short night at the theatre! They also get the chance to be part of the judging process.
