Join us for an entertaining evening of short plays penned by Australian playwrights and performed and directed by local Sunshine Coast members. There is something for everyone, quirky, funny, moving and thought provoking all in one package.
The two dramas of the evening are both written by Sydney born Alex Broun who is the worlds most performed 10 minute play playwright, with over 100 ten minute plays produced in over 1,500 productions around the world. Two of the comedies are written and directed by our own Sunshine Coast playwrights Bruce Olive and Alice Rea.

From a yoga studio, to the cabin of a plane 10000 feet above ground, from an awkward fIrst date to the streets of Hanoi, this is a show offering a diverse range of genres and themes, with each story told in just 10 minutes!

Please note that some plays contain adult themes and mild coarse language.

The Plays:

Ash – Drama – written by Alex Broun, directed by Sue Sewell
Trikonasana – Comedy – written and directed by Alice Rea
The Date – Comedy – written by Ian Westley, directed by John McMahon
The Ninth Step – Drama – written by Alex Broun, directed by Jacqui Mata Luque
