Short+Sweet Week 10 – Wed 14 to Sun 18 March – moves to Sidetrack Theatre in Marrickville ahead of the climactic finals of the festival

Short+Sweet Week 10 features FUGUE DEI PASSAGGERI by Rockhampton writer Mark Lucas. A ‘quiet compartment’ in a state rail train carriage… but the peace doesn’t last long! Only one sentence is uttered in the whole play; it features mime and an atmospheric soundscape by Matthew Craig.  And the actors – from the four corners of Sydney – all caught trains to rehearsals!

SOMETIMES LOOKING UP ISN’T GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH is about a surreal dinner party where nothing is what it seems….

THE RECRUIT is a delicious black comedy where two street kids find themselves involved in a deadly job interview for the secret service! Writer: Graham Brown (ACT) Director: Henry Jennings  Cast: Stephen Holland, Jenny Jacobs, Hoa X Nguyen, Sam Phoenix

FULL MOON CAFÉ   “Just because you’re homeless doesn’t mean you don’t have time for romance!” Writer: Felicia Henderson (NSW) Director: Uma Kali Shakti  Cast: Frank Davidson and Fabiola Meza ITC: Skid Row Players

FOUR CRÈME BRULEES ON A GRAND PIANO is veteran Short+Sweet star and award-winner, Steve McGrath’s weirdly hilarious battle between a Buddhist (the Dali Lama) and a surrealist (Salvador Dali).
