I had a friend come and stay the weekend, visiting from just outside Melbourne. He was here for the Short and Sweet Theatre Festival at Newtown Theatre. It is a collection of short plays, 10 minutes long, shown over about 2 months. The audience votes for their favourite and the finalists are shown at NIDA. I accompanied him to see the play he had written. I felt a little bit posh being in the company of a playwright I must say. It was a fun night - if a little hot inside. I hope his play is one of the finalists so I get to see it again at NIDA. Keep fingers crossed.
