Short Attention Span Theatre (SAST) is back at The Gaiety – giving patrons the chance to savour half a dozen new productions, along with soup, a roll and a drink – all for a bargain price.

Tickets are available now for performances at noon and 6pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 16-18 May 2024.

It follows SAST’s successful inaugural run in February, when audiences flocked to The Gaiety Theatre to enjoy a feast of theatre – along with soup, roll and refreshment.

Tickets cost just £15 each. Book online now via thegaiety.co.uk or call 01292 288235.

Tom Brogan, co-founder of SAST, said: “We were delighted with the popularity of our initial run at The Gaiety. All the performances were well supported and the feedback was very positive.

“This is a new initiative so it’s heartening to see people embrace it so enthusiastically. We have another menu of superb plays on the way, served up by our wonderful actors and backroom team.

“Theatre is for everyone. Whether you’re a regular or have never been to see a play, come along. It’s a chance to see six brand new short plays for a great price – with soup, a roll and a drink included.”


Since its inception in 2015, SAST has been dedicated to supporting new voices in theatre and, with the help of a stellar cast of professional actors, they have transformed raw talent into captivating performances.

Over the years, SAST has presented the first theatre work by acclaimed authors Rachelle Atalla, Elissa Soave and Kirkland Ciccone, as well as the celebrated short story writer Chris McQueer.
