SHORT+SWEET SYDNEY 2018
Top 80 | 21st – 25th February
Wildcards | 24th – 25th February
at the Tom Mann Theatre Sydney

Black Box Theatre are sending three plays selected from its 24 Hour Theatre 2017 and adapted to ten minutes for Short+Sweet Sydney 2018. All three will take place in the same performance week in what will be an exciting time for over a dozen Illawarra emerging actors, writers and directors.

Our entry into the Top 80 Strand of Short+Sweet Sydney (week 4) is Sevgi Murphy’s moving drama The Quality of Life directed by Luke Berman. The Quality of Life follows the story of Alice; a once exuberant teenager who is currently experiencing a Major Depressive Episode. This short drama is a snapshot of Alice’s road to recovery with touching performances by a dynamic trio of young women.

Our first entry into the Wildcards (week 4) of Short+Sweet Sydney is Tom Peach’s black comedy Badda Bing Badda Bang which will be directed by young emerging director Jarrod Sleiman. Four young men have to get round to their dead friend’s apartment and make sure there’s nothing incriminating left in there before his grieving relatives arrive.

Also in week 4 Wildcards will be The Human Trap which is written and directed by Alexander Cuff. Martin​ ​Smith ​is ​ the ​ last ​ surviving ​ human ​ ​in ​the ​universe. ​So, ​ naturally, ​ poachers ​ ​want ​ him ​ dead. ​ The latest​ ​in ​a ​long ​line ​of ​bounty​ ​hunters​ ​trying ​to ​claim ​his ​head ​are ​a cold, ​ unfeeling ​ ​scientist ​and ​his emotional​ robot, ​ as ​ well ​ ​as ​an ​alien ​ and ​ his ​ ​imperfect ​clone. ​Will ​Martin ​survive…​ the ​ Human ​ Trap?
