A lot can happen in ten minutes… and they’re here to prove it.

The biggest little play festival is back at The Arts Centre Gold Coast, feeding short attention spans with bite-sized theatre and shot glass cabaret! As the sushi train of the performance world, Short+Sweet serves you more than 30 new performance works by local artists - each one deliciously different from the next.

See up to ten plays or eight cabaret acts at once, then vote for your favourite to send them through to the Gala Finals. You don’t need a big appetite to sample everything on the menu – they’re here to keep it Short+Sweet.

Now entering its fifteenth year, Short+Sweet is the biggest festival of 10-minute theatre in the world! Over 200 Queensland artists will come together to stage 10-minute works of theatre and cabaret in diverse and exciting lineups. Over 300 short plays are produced by Short+Sweet every year, bringing together artists from a variety of backgrounds and making global creative connections. Each lineup will move from outrageous comedy to grisly drama to sultry song.
