600 seconds of anything goes. After a short break 600 Seconds returns with all new artists sticking to one simple rule: you have ten minutes to impress.  No holds are barred in five packed programs. Comedy, theatre, improv, storytelling, performance – we have it all.

From emerging artists cutting their teeth to seasoned performers trying something new, you’ll never know what to expect in this mixed bag of short works.

This is FRINGE WORLD… Anything can happen in 600 Seconds.
