Very happy to hear that Stargazersmade the podium of each category of Week 8 of Short+Sweet Sydney 2017. It placed third for People’s Choice and Judge’s Choice. Well, kind of. There was a tie for second in the Judge’s Choice, so it was technically fourth! Still, considering there was 12 plays on the bill, this is a fantastic effort!
Big congrats to director Simeon Yialeloglou and his cast – Blake Eaton, Georgia Heiniger and David Quinn. Wish I could have been there to see it come to life.
Congrats also to the winning plays – One Punch,Game of the Century, and Floss.
Below are some Stargazers pics by Robert Miniter. There is also a short but positive review in the Sydney Arts Guide if you’re keen for a read.
My short play Stargazers is set to hit the boards as part of Week 8 of Short+Sweet Sydney 2017 from Wednesday 1 March to Sunday 5 March at The Depot Theatre.
This little play has been popping up all over the place. After making the finals of Short+Sweet Hollywood in late 2016, it was also part of Moment to Moment’s Pub Theatre season in Melbourne just a few weeks back.
The S+S Sydney version of Stargazers will be directed by Simeon Yialeloglou and will feature Blake Eaton, Georgia Heiniger and David Quinn.
Stargazers is one of my favourite short plays, so I’m super bummed I won’t be able to get up to see this performance. However, there will be plenty of Canberra actors hitting the same stage, including Sreejith Gangadharan and Nithin Balakrishnan (in The Bridge) and Nick Steain (in Judgment Days). No doubt I’ll hear all about it!
If you’re Sydney based and want to catch the shows, you can book tickets here. Be quick, many Week 7 shows were sold out!
