Short Message Service

Short Message Service

A small moment of theatre in the palm of your hands

This event has passed

Short Message Service is a moment of theatre delivered to you, to your phone, in the comfort of your own home.

Developed and programmed by Q Theatre, Short Message Service will be delivered to audiences via a series of text messages over one hour and crafted by playwrights including Western Sydney locals Donna AbelaMonikka Eliah and Margaret Davis; acclaimed writer and satirist Jonathan Biggins, with actor, writer and singer Mandy Bishop; and Winner of the 2015 Balnaves Foundation Indigenous Playwright’s Award, Katie Beckett.

Short Message Service will deliver compelling narratives under the theme of ‘intimacy’. It is a chance for audiences to sit back and experience the excitement of the unexpected, all without leaving the living room – and it doesn’t cost a thing!
