Scene + Heard Kicks off in just 3 weeks! Some really exciting stuff is being put on this year; it's your best chance to get in on the ground floor and see some fantastic new work! With that in mind, we're going to spotlight some of the cool stuff you can catch in week 1 of the festival. (It also helps that the Yank's involved with these shows. *cough*)
NIGHT SHIFT marks the triumphant return of writer Naomi Elster; she did a pretty great play about the 1913 lockout called SCABS, and took some time off to work on a PhD in Cancer Research. As you do. This is her newest work, and it's a cracking comic drama that perfectly captures the 'eavesdropping on an argument in a cafe' vibe.
An Unexpected Corpse.
Kate’s attempts to confront her husband’s ‘problem’ go hilariously wrong. But the others in her all-night café have darker secrets, bigger problems. A daughter on the run. A brother and sister in search of escape. Their personal dramas are about to boil over...
Night Shift is a comedy (black, 2 sugars) that asks: how well do we really know those we know best?
