Little Theatre presents Flash Festival

Woy Woy Little Theatre will present its Flash Festival at the Peninsula Theatre from September 21-23, with 10 short plays written by local playwrights on the theme of change.

A mix of new and experienced directors and actors will offer a varied program, guaranteeing lots of laughs and much to inspire thought.

The program includes a driving lesson with a twist, a tale of political machinations, an absurdist piece on a final job interview and a quirky tale of a disgruntled Santa struggling to come up with Christmas gift ideas.

Festival coordinator Ms Fran Armstrong said the festival provided a vehicle for new and aspiring playwrights, actors and directors, to showcase their talents.

"From more than 30 submissions, our panel of independent readers chose the very best 10 plays, from five to15 minutes in length, to present to our audiences," Ms Armstrong said.

There is something for everyone in the varied program, if you don't enjoy one play, you only have to wait a few minutes to see another," she said.

This is the company's third Flash festival, following similar festivals in 2015 and 2016.

Actors this year include Paul Russell, Annie Bilton, Stephen Pearson and Yvonne Berry-Porter.

The plays include Forgive Me Father, written by Mr Andrew Thomson, directed by Ms Annie Bilton, with Mr Paul Russell and Mr Stephen Pearson in the cast.
