Having attended three earlier "heats," I feel somewhat of a veteran of the series and it's concepts and foibles.

This show was remarkable.

Every one of the eleven short plays were excellent. Their very different topics and interpretations made for a sizzling night of theatre. As my companion said when contemplating her voting slip, "This is going to be hard."

The pressure is building now, audiences seem to increase with every season of ten minute works. It is hard to see how people who have already attended will be able to resist the chance to see the final progamme of shows commencing April 8. This group of plays will be the compiled choices of hundreds of votes cast over the four weeks. Judges, who are theatre associates will also have had input in these final choices.

Even more nail-bitingly thrilling will be the announcements of the Best Writer, the Best Director, the Best Male Actor and the Best Female Actor, at the conclusion of the final night of the series on Saturday 10 April.

This is the first season  of Short+Sweet in Perth and I can confidently say it won't be the last. It has all the makings of a cherished annual event.
