Short + Sweet 2021

Date: 20 Apr 2021

The biggest little play festival in the world is now entering its 20th year, returning to the Tom Mann Theatre in Surry Hills.

On offer this week:

I Was Fine Until You Came In The Room by Rich Orloff, directed by Kym Vaitiekus, in which Helen and Pete remember the day they met… which led to a 50-year marriage.

Dating Through the Decades by Ken Levine, directed by Gina Cohen: A boy and a girl date in every decade from 1950’s until today.

Diary of Marilyn, a tour-de-force solo piece by Debbie Neilson features actual Marilyn Monroe quotes. The iconic actress questions who she really is and if anyone – herself included – has the answers.

The Ratings Game, written and directed by Wendy Crew, is a spoof on the entertainment industry starring Tony Croft, Jawed Winjgebrael and Erica Nelson.

In Missing You by Simon Tonkin, directed by Mary Middleton, a young man arrives at his suicided ex-girlfriend’s parents’ house to pick up a left behind item but finds himself in a terrifying revenge plot.

Twisted Ladder by Pauline Bleach, co-written and directed by Gabriela Loza is psychological thriller with Roelene Coleman, Quaid Kirchner and Aaron Okey.

The Seagull by Fran Bowick, directed by Jeff Tabley, explores identity, sexuality and love – oh, and fresh hot chips! With Tabley, Adam Dorrington and Patrick Wells.

Expectations by Jennifer O’Grady, directed by Harriet McKern, is a play about power, women’s lives and expectations. Charles Dickens (Steve Wilson) and his wife Kate (Michelle McDonnell) speak in intersecting – and deeply contrasting – monologues about their separation, twenty-two years of marriage and nine children.

Lullaby by Joe Bergin, directed by Veena Sudarshan sees a couple – Shane and Julie – struggling to cope with the demands of parenthood. Enter a stranger, claiming to be the man of Julie’s dreams…
