Short + Sweet 2021

Date: 5 Nov 2021

The biggest little play festival in the world is now entering its 20th year. Snack-sized offerings this week include:

Homage to Edith Cowan, a dance piece by Mira Mansell featuring Anna Querin, celebrating the life of Edith Cowan, a voice for women and children from colonial days.

In We Regret to Inform You That by Eric Jiang, a young couple apply for the same prestigious opportunity, but discover that they might not be able to cope with any of the potential outcomes.

As Nice As Pie by Barry Wood (UK) is directed by Lachlan McWilliam and sees ‘Adam’ take in a tenant but what they expect in return for doing the housework means Claire might take some convincing …

Judgement Day by Katrina Samaras puts ‘Kate’ in one of Heaven’s smaller courtrooms, quite unprepared to argue her case for eternal life… until an unexpected friend comes to her defence.

Heartland by Andrea Clardy is directed by Gregory Dolgopolov and stars Eliane Morel and Elizabeth Newman. Two women in a crowded, hot, foreign airport wait for the same plane bound for a war-torn country – one to take her home, one to search for her son. As delay follows delay we feel their growing connection.

Andrea Clardy’s Code is an all-female piece portraying the dark tech world of government surveillance. Kristina Ingegneri stars and directs Lainey Baldwin and Rachel Seeto, asking: what if Google were a government agency?
