The Shows

Australia has a strong tradition of supporting short plays, including the highly successful multi-city 'Short and Sweet Festival'. Members of the company have been involved in various short play programs and have been excited and inspired by the enthusiastic audience response to the variety and fast-pace of these shows.

Our twelve plays have been selected from thousands submitted to recent Australian competitions and festivals, where they have been performed to great acclaim. Our productions aim to showcase the best of Australian short-play writing talent for the Edinburgh Fringe audience.

An additional advantage of short plays is the flexibility with which they can be programmed. Light Bites and Tasty Treats offer audiences the opportunity to come and go in the middle of each six-play show, seeing the first half, the second half, or both depending on the time they have available.
