An independent festival in its fifth year, Micro Theatre is a festival of short plays performed in smaller, intimate spaces such as art galleries and cafés, with the stage encompassing the venue. The event invites writers and directors to submit scripts, with 12 successful plays (out of 43 entries in 2019) chosen to play across 3 venues – this year being Birdy's Café, Bolton St Pantry and The Press Bookhouse.
Four plays will perform at each venue each night from 7pm. Birdy's Café – BFF; Rollercoaster; Women of the World; and What is About to Happen on the Dancefloor? Bolton St Pantry – Russian Spies; More World; Not Just for Christmas; and Just the Ticket. The Press Bookhouse – The Handsome Man; The Last Confession; Sting; and Accident.
Catch the Micro Theatre Festival each Thursday Friday and Saturday night (May 23 - June 1). Tickets are $18, on sale from April 3 through www.microtheatre.com.au
