My short play Speed Dating has recently been short-listed for the Auckland season of Short and Sweet, following the announcement that it will be performed as a wildcard entry as part of the Brisbane season in Australia.
The list of plays to be performed will be announced soon, but it’s exciting just to have made the list of forty-four.
My short play “Speed Dating” will be performed as a part of the Brisbane Short + Sweet festival, on the 18th of August.
It’s on at The Loft, Kelvin Grove, and tickets are available now.
My short play, “Speed Dating” has been short-listed for Short + Sweet Queensland, 2012.
It’s all a bit surreal, because plays are not my main writing form, but definitely pleasing as well!
I’m very unsure how to review this, as it is the sort of play that doesn’t read particularly well (in my opinion), but I can see that it would be fantastic on stage, with the right people playing the parts.
I have a feeling that I would give the writing four or five stars after having seen it live, but the quick back-and-forth of conversation and the featured nothingness mean that I would probably only give it two stars if it were just a book to read.
