Short Cuts 8 – Eight times the charm.

“Absolutely hilarious plays!” Female Arts *****

“Short Cuts provided a high standard of entertainment through excellent writing, directing, acting and performances…better than you would see in the west end. –  Theatre Junkie ****

It’s been 14 months since the last Short Cuts….we’re officially back, better than ever, with our 8th festival!

We cordially invite you to join us for FIVE nights of twisted comedy fun, as we present four new short plays, including two one woman shows.  All dark, all comic and all downright weird.

We’ve brought together plays by Marny Godden, Eliza Power,  Kate Cook and Otis Waby.
