Introducing the first ITC productions for Short+Sweet Illawarra 2018

We are proud to announce the first batch of plays that will light up the stage at the very first Short+Sweet Illawarra – the newest addition to the world’s largest little play festival.

The first plays to make the cut are our Independent Theatre Company’s, which come from both established and brand new theatre groups in the Illawarra, and as far down the coast as Pambula!

It is our honour to introduce successful ITC productions into Short+Sweet Illawarra 2018:

Script Submissions Closing Soon for Short+Sweet Illawarra


FINAL CALL: Script and ITC Submissions


Submissions close 11:59 pm Thursday 31st May 2018

Time is running out to be a part of the Illawarra's inaugural season of ten-minute plays as part of Short+Sweet: The world's biggest little play festival. If your play is shortlisted, it will be available to be selected by our directors for performance in October. 

Writer and ITC Submission Open

Submissions are now open for local community and independent theatre companies to submit a script, including director and actors to be considered for the inaugural Short+Sweet Illawarra season in October.

You don't need to be an established theatre group to submit an ITC entry, even a loose collection of creatives is fine by us. All we ask is that your play is no more than ten minutes in duration.

Your ITC submission must have a director assigned, and any cast members you wish to include in your project. ITC's may choose to cast from the Short+Sweet Open Auditions.
