The return of Shoreside Theatre’s One Act Play Festival sees four new directors, four new plays and four talented casts.

From the absurdist “Words, Words, Words” by David Ives to the whimsical “Into Thin Air” – a new NZ work written and directed by North Shore local Jenny Whisken, there is something for everyone in great bite sized chunks.

All four plays are performed on one great night of theatre.
