I was super surprised and super delighted to learn that my short play Stargazers will be part of the inaugural Short+Sweet Hollywood in September.
This is the first time a Short+Sweet Festival has run in the US, and it will mark the occasion with a three week season at the Stella Adler Theatre, Los Angeles. About 60 directors and more than more than 160 actors will present creative, funny, touching and avant-garde works from 60 short-play writers.
Stargazers will be in Week 1 of proceedings from September 8 to 11. It will be directed by LA based theatre maker, Julie Briggs, and will feature Hannah Mae Sturges, Matt Swain and Hannes Phinney. Here’s what Julie said about her motivation for choosing Stargazers from the 132 available scripts:
“So funny, romantic, surprising, silly and hopeful. It’s a perfectly constructed 10-minute play. Smart, crisp writing, great characters, high stakes, a ticking clock. So good!”
Best. Feedback. Ever.
Short+Sweet Hollywood runs from 8 – 25 September. If you happen to be in La La Land, you can book tickets via Brown Paper Tickets.
