Benito's New Play - Short & Sweet 2009 - Meat Puppet Epiphany.

Benito Di Fonzo's most recent short play "Meat Puppet Epiphany" will be playing downstairs at The Seymour Centre, Sydney, from Feb 4 - 7 as far as Short & Sweet 2009, the world's largest short play festival ( ). I've had a play in every Short & Sweet so far, including "Pokie Face" in 2002 which later toured around Australia as part of the best of Short & Sweet, and "9/11 Conspiracy: The Musical" in 2007 which won 'Best New Talent' at the Gala Finale. Last year's show "The Chronic Ills of Robert Zimmerman, aka Bob Dylan (A Lie)" has been expanded into a full length show to be staged at The Old Fitzroy in a few months (watch this blog for details.

This journey through Benito's imagination is an absurd visual feast, showcasing an awesome cast from Wollongong and Sydney.
