The biggest little play festival in the world is turning 20 this year in its hometown of Sydney and will be returning to the Tom Mann Theatre in Surry Hills from August 28 - October 9!

Nick Hardcastle returns as Festival Director with Belinda Ling as Festival Producer. After having to reprogram the 2021 festival 5 times due to COVID and associated restrictions in 2021, Nick and Belinda are focusing on a consolidated and elevated event that is a true celebration of the great spirit, legacy and format that everyone loves about Short+Sweet! Oh and there will be cake!

All remaining plays that were invited in to the 2021 festival and were unable to be presented will be automatically invited to appear this year.  There will be NO WILDCARDS this year. Everyone who is accepted in the Festival will be programmed in competition and will be guaranteed two evenings and one matinee performance. Our groups this year will be named after some inspring artists who have been members of our Short+Sweet Sydney community and have gone on to continue to inspire us in their respective artistic lives.

SUBMIT YOUR SCRIPT by June 17, 2022 HERE!!

Short+Sweet is, at its heart, a community and professional development, cultural event. It is a wonderful opportunity 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.
 
With this in mind, in 2021 we created our very first DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION PROGRAMMING COMMITTEE

"To ensure that we have the opportunity to see the full breadth of our community here in Sydney represented on stage, I am building a Diversity and Inclusion Programming Team. Everyone on this team will be asked to engage with specific community groups of writers, directors and actors to make sure that those artists have an opportunity to participate in the festival and that their stories can be shared. Whether they be diversely abled, BIPOC, new immigrants, LGBTQ+, have English as a second language or are elderly - I want anyone that might think that there isn't a place for them in the open English language program of Short+Sweet, to know that we have room for them and want them to be seen and heard," says FD Nick Hardcastle.

Your City, Your Stories - YOUR FESTIVAL since 2002!

To find out more or to apply to join our D&I Committee, contact nick.hardcastle@shortandsweet.org

Short+Sweet presents a unique opportunity to sponsors and partners to reach thousands of people over a extended period. With in theatre activations, on screen loops, outdoor signage, verbal acknowledgements, merchandise, a printed festival brochure, special events, prize giving opportunities and an endless array of bespoke collaborations possible - now is the time to get your brand or company involved with our incredibly engaged community!
