Original writing 

What is Scene Unseen?
Scene Unseen is a New Stagers production that we put on every year as part of the Wandsworth Fringe. Scene Unseen is made up of a selection of short original plays that have been written, directed and performed by New Stagers. It is a stripped back performance with minimal set, props or costume, where we let the writing, acting and directing do the talking. To date we have had three very successful runs with plays from all genres, including a musical!

How do I get involved?

We are delighted to announce the six successful plays to be performed as part of our entry to the 2020 Wandsworth Fringe are as follows: 

  • 'Behind the curtain' - Alex Piggins

  • 'Benchmark' - Laura Chisholm

  • 'Book club' - Kate Bromage

  • 'Career Coach' - Ashley Malster

  • 'Slippery when Wet' - Katie Bryan

  • 'Tomayto Tomarto' - Jimmy Long

We are hosting the very first public read-through of the six plays at a date and place to be announced.

Many, many thanks to all those who submitted a play this year - our panellists were blown away by the quality of each of the scripts, so thanks again and kudos to our six successful writers. 

We do hope you can join us for the first official reading of each of the plays before auditions at a date and place to be announced.
