Directors are able to choose from all shortlisted scripts for their local festival, and are encouraged to communicate with their Writers throughout the process.
To apply to direct a play for Short+Sweet and Short+Sweet LATINO Hollywood, please email Festival Director, Nick Hardcastle (email@example.com ) with an outline of your theatre and/or directing experience, a CV where possible and your request for a spot in either our English language or Latino program. Successful directors will be notified by July 22 and will be sent plays from our shortlist. They must then return to us with their top three preferences by August 2. The highest preference will be allocated wherever possible.
Directors cannot act in their own play unless it’s part of an ITC (Independent Theatre Company). Directors are allowed to direct a maximum of one play in Short+Sweet, unless otherwise granted permission by the Festival Director.
