Short + Sweet Info Session and Free Ten-Minute Play Workshop to be held on Saturday May 17th at the Brisbane Powerhouse

After sellout successes in Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore and Malaysia, Short + Sweet, the biggest ten-minute theatre festival in the world, is coming to Brisbane with the inaugural Brisbane Short + Sweet set to premiere at the Brisbane Powerhouse in March 2009.

In order to inform the Brisbane theatre community about Short + Sweet – and how you can be involved, we will be running a FREE Short + Sweet Info Session in the VISY Theatre at the Powerhouse on Saturday May 17th at 4pm.

Writers, actors, directors and independent theatre companies are all invited to come along and get a run down on the festival from the Festival Director of Brisbane Short + Sweet 2009, Alex Broun, and the Artistic Director of Short + Sweet International, Mark Cleary.

Mark and Alex will be answering all your questions about Short + Sweet Brisbane and more importantly outlining how you can get involved.

And if you’re a playwright come along to the FREE Ten-Minute Playwriting Workshop, run by Alex Broun, one of the world’s leading ten minute playwrights which will be held in the Visy Theatre from Noon, also on Saturday May 17th.

This is a three hour workshop where Alex will be running through all important points to remember when writing a ten minute play, to help you get your entry for Short + Sweet Brisbane ready. The workshop will cover what makes a good ten minute play, ideas on what to write your play about, possible styles for your play and Story Structure : Beginnings Middles and Ends.
