Short+Sweet Theatre Sydney 2020

The biggest little play festival in the world is now entering its 19th year in its hometown of Sydney and will be returning to the Tom Mann Theatre in Surry Hills from Feb 14 to April 19 2020.
We will be returning once again with a smorgasbord of 10-minute plays to delight your tastebuds, with hundreds of talented actors, writers and directors showcasing their skills and bringing you a wonderful season of short theatre.

This year's categories include the Top 80, Under 25’s, Women’s Week and LGBTQ Theatre. 

The Short+Sweet festival is a wonderful tool for writers, directors and actors who want to share their voice and talent in a professional environment and venue. Its goal is to become a powerful tool for diversity in the entertainment industry, as well as providing a way to discover new or established local talent by engaging more people in the live theatre experience. The festival multiplies participants' raw and creative energy, with different ensembles, directors and writers exchanging ideas, learning from each other and providing creative inspiration.
