Short + Sweet

Now in its ninth 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 NSW, Brisbane, Melbourne, Rockhampton and Newcastle. This year SHORT+SWEET will also have an international programme with festivals in Malaysia, Taipei, Auckland, Delhi and Mumbai.

SHORT+SWEET affords budding playwrights the opportunity of seeing their work come to life on stage - it’s a festival about uncovering and developing new writers. It is now the world’s largest 10-minute play festival and this year 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 or less; 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.

Brisbane’s SHORT+SWEET Festival showcases 10 minute plays, 11 plays per night over 12 nights, with 14 Independent theatre companies, 18 Directors, 32 writers, 32 plays and over 100 actors.
