Welcome to the world of Short+Sweet. A more creative world – ten-minutes at a time!

While this is only Abu Dhabi’s third year, the competition itself started in Sydney 15 years ago. Since then it has spread across the globe and is now in seven countries and over 23 cities. Short+Sweet arrived in the UAE in 2013, and has blossomed ever since.

Each year Short+Sweet worldwide presents around 500 of the best ten-minute plays in our festivals, utilizing the talents of the best young and established directors, actors, and technical personnel.

Each Short+Sweet Festival has three clear goals, in the following order:

For the participants to have a positive experience For the audience to have a positive experience To create good theatre

Plays encompassing a broad variety of genres will be staged over two nights. In addition to the actors and directors being UAE-based, many of the plays being staged have been written by members of the capital’s theatre scene. There are three performances in total at Short+Sweet Abu Dhabi 2018 – two Top 10 shows and one Wildcard show. While those who have been to previous Short+Sweet Abu Dhabifestivals will recognize many of the names involved in the Top 10, the Wildcards are often more experimental, and offer new directors, writers and actors the chance to prove themselves on the Short+Sweet stage. However, the plays and performances in Top 10 and Wildcards are of an equal standard.
