THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON

Writer

Director

Genre

Actors

Tristram Baumber

Maurice Silver

Comedy

Anthony Howes, Trent Baines, Elliot Walker and Lucinda Regan

Best

Actor

Best

Production

Wisdom for one may not be wisdom for all.  A cautionary tale where the Wisdom of Solomon made great sense, but then again it didn’t - with shades of Blackadder’s Prince Regent thrown in for good measure.  Who can resist a play that contains the line; I am no lollipop – I am the King!

WHEELER DEALER

Writer

Director

Genre

Actors

Sally Davies

John Wood

Comedy

Harold Phipps, Belinda Hodgeson and Craig Lindeman

Best

New Script

A young man, with a habit of buying random items from strangers in pubs, meets his sister for a coffee.  He needs cash for another of his indiscriminate purchases, and as his sister questions him over the details, the replies become more bizarre by the moment. 

SECRETS

Writer

Director

Genre

Actors

Peter King

Claudia King

Drama

Theo Rule, Jarred Mainey, Alison Murphy and Kerryn Taylor

When a play starts with the line, ‘I didn’t mean to kill him,’ it can’t help but grab your attention.  A powerful work that skillfully took the audience on the lifelong journey of a troubled family in 15 minutes as the central character, Tim, let the blame for his father’s death fall on his innocent brother.

THAT'S CONFIDENCE

Writer

Director

Genre

Actors

Tristram Baumber

Drew Pittman

Comedy

Luke Power, Alex Jacobs, Stephanie McDonald, David Gray, Hayley Doherty

Comic brilliance as a quiet man learns confidence – the hard way.  The two great leads of Luke Power and Alexander Jacobs made it perfectly believable that the author of your self help tape would turn up at lunch to help you confidently charm the girl of your dreams – with one of the best closing lines of a short play we have ever heard.

THIS KISS

Writer

Director

Genre

Actors

Kylie Farrugia and Tracey Dwyer

John Wood

Comedy

Michael Byrne and Linda Read and Craig Lindeman

This Kiss took us on a journey through life one kiss at a time - from the first kissing misadventures of youth, though passion and betrayal, laugher and tears – all in 15 minutes.
