The National One Act Play Festival presented by Noosa Arts Theatre celebrates its 40th year anniversary this year with three finalists chosen from across Australia.

Two comedies and a drama will showcase some of Australia’s best writing talent. Seeking Nirvana by Dave Wellings and directed by Tania Nash is a gentle comedy with bursts of hilarity set in an aged care facility. As residents come to terms with the frustrations of ageing and the loss of abilities they are all uplifted by the arrest of their fellow resident, the sergeant major. Starring Sandy Ludscome, Tim Murfin, Paul Ritchie, Jim Crawford, Julia Verburgt, Nicole Koy and Sam Taylor.

The Big Lap
by Bruce Olive and directed by Sue Sewell is strong family drama with flourishes of black humour as an adult daughter sabotages her own life and those of the people around her. It is based on a true story and concerns the growing trend of children becoming their grandparents' responsibility because of parents' inability to cope. Starring Rob Carroll, Kat White and Oriana Packman.

Unforgettable by Cerise De Gelder and directed by Jacqui Mata Luque is a historical comedy crime caper delivered in a series of scenes creating a story about one of the most famous artworks in the world. Starring Deborah Ellison, Joe Jurisevic, Sean McDermott, Janine Ritchie, Glen Miller, Claire Fermo, Paul Southgate and Robert Hicks.
