Short+Sweet Theatre Illawarra 2021

**New Season Dates**

Short+Sweet kicks off its third season of bite-sized theatre, two programs featuring 23 original short plays which will be staged at the Bridge Street Theatre Coniston, home of the Phoenix Theatre Company.

Scripts written by Illawarra writers were favoured heavily by our directors, an impressive testimony to our local visionaries who were up against some of our best scripts submitted from around the world.

Our 2021 Top 20 Program has a strong representation of female artists in particular, with 13 directors and 12 writers leading the way in the festival this year.
