Scene Gym Shorts offers an entertaining evening of new writing, through five short plays, developed through our collaborative workshops. The plays are directed and performed by both Scene Gym members and exciting fresh talent.
The event celebrates two years since Scene Gym launched their innovative workshop programme to offer writers, directors and actors a chance to work together on new plays.
Hosted at the Arcola Theatre, Dalston, and produced by Scene Gym, the line-up for the evening includes:
‘Never Have I Ever’ by Caitlin Abra Middleton, directed by Rachel Heyburn
Five women find themselves spending the night at a police station, when a harmless drinking game between friends gets out of hand.
‘Debris’ by Joe James Stu, directed by Quentin Beroud with Alex Defert
When an uninvited guest makes the most unconventional of appearances in Vincent’s studio flat one afternoon, his suburban existence is irrevocably thrown in to question.
‘Lovesick’ by James McDermott, directed by Roman Pedro Berry
A gritty, funny, moving take on dating in the digital age. Will the technology that brought Manny and his boyfriend together only tear them apart?
‘Class mates’ by Micah Smith, directed by Or Benezra-Segal
A satirical exploration of childhood friendships and adult relationships that have survived the test of time. Well, almost.
‘Out of The Dark’ by Suzy Gill
A Drama in Spoken Word piece about the loss, guilt and shame a couple experience when their baby daughter is diagnosed with epilepsy and special needs, but most of all about the courage, hope and love that shines through.
