Of course the curtain will still be raised and Scene + Heard brings fresh hope and enthusiasm in this festival of new work which extends well beyond stage left and right. In its five years to date, it has proven an invaulable opportunity to put your best foot forward and see where the next step leads to. besides workshops and networking opportunities for practicitoners, for the public Scene + Heard pormise a programme dipping into satirical sci-fi, high farce, dystopian futures, romance, grotesque bodies, hurricane comedies, period poverty, climate change, aerial drama, suicidial ukeleles and more. Draw breath, select and go!
