Going Viral

Well, it's that time of the year again. Now in its sixth year in Dubai, the Short+Sweet Theatre festival is the largest showcase of ten minute plays in the world.

Director Minali Patel has picked a play that questions our digital footprint today and also what it may be like in the future. "By basing it in 2040, I wanted to explore the above as well as how relevant social media would be in the coming years. Would social media fade off, stay with people who are currently using it, or transcend to something else?", says Minali.

Part of Top 40 week 4, it's on at the The Junction, Al Serkal Avenue on Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th of February, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.

The festival runs from the 26th of January to the 3rd of March and will feature over 80 plays. Tickets are available on Platinumlist and at the venue.

See you there!
