Short + Sweet Dublin

This event has ended

Sean O'Casey Theatre, Tuesday 22nd October - Saturday 26th October

Short+Sweet Dublin is a week long festival of 20 ten-minute plays, running at The Sean O’Casey Theatre in East Wall from October 22nd – 26th. With over 90 participants, this festival aims to expand the Irish theatre network through five nights of original and engaging theatre.

Short+Sweet, an international festival established in Sydney, has been running for 17 years and is currently active in 30+ cities, with over 2.5k artists involved globally each year. Short+Sweet Dublin is the first European iteration.

Festival director, Karoline O’Sullivan decided to bring Short+Sweet to Ireland after being involved in the festival while living in Australia. ‘I’m back in Ireland almost five years now, but it took me a while to believe that I had it in me to be able to produce something of this size. Eventually, if it’s something you really want, you just have to take that leap of faith.’

With 10 plays performed each night, the audience can expect to experience a whirlwind of emotional journeys as they move into a new world every 10 minutes. According to O’Sullivan, there is never a dull moment in an evening at Short+Sweet Dublin. Themes range from loneliness and regret to learning to appreciate the simple pleasures in life, with a little Shakespearen zombie madness to top it all off.
