Script Submissions Open
Short+Sweet Illawarra is currently taking scripts for its inaugural season of ten-minute theatre on NSW's South Coast. Short+Sweet Illawarra will launch with a Top 20 season over two weeks in October this year.
Writers from Illawarra and South coast are encouraged to submit, as we are looking to have strong local representation amongst the highest rated script entries from around the world.
In the place where the mountains meet the sea, Short+Sweet Illawarra launches its inaugural season of ten-minute plays with a top 20 season at two venues in the Wollongong region in 2018. The Illawarra is an untapped theatre heartland, boasting hundreds of actors, writers and directors. The Illawarra supports a vibrant community theatre scene second to none in regional Australia.
With a focus on regional artist development, Short+Sweet will look at providing a pathway for regional emerging artists to have their work seen by the wider theatre community, as well as contribute to the region’s diversity in its performing arts community.
