featuring several new short plays for the theatre stage at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe - including

NOBODY KNOWS THE TROUBLES I’VE SEEN

Screenstage Studios returns to the Edinburgh Fringe for the fourth successive year - and in 2019 we offer a Drama Showcase featuring several short plays, monologues and spoken-word performances from some outstanding emerging and established actors.

The main production will be Nobody Knows The Troubles I've Seen with Noel Franson and Noe Bell in a 3-scene play set in Ireland. Married couple Liam and Bridget are in mid-disagreement about going out for dinner. 

Ill-tempered Bridget can’t decide what to do, where to go, if or when she finally decides, what to eat, nor if her brother Philip and his wife - whom she detests - should join them. The dialogue between the pair moves from light comedy to dark drama as deep-rooted attitudes over the Irish Troubles emerge from both.

It's Over is a compelling and moving monologue performed by Andrew Martin as a young man who decides he has to finally accept the harsh realities of why his relationship has come to a definitive end.

Scar  The emotional scar left by the tarnish of love that's gone bad or unfulfilled is presented in a deeply moving monologue from Saira Thomson.

The Mother  Begonia Villalba performs a deeply disturbing and powerful monologue of a parent who is struggling to cope with motherhood.

Snow Job with Freda Macdonell and Maggie Joyce-Anderson is set in a cafe as two strangers meet - with one planning a sinister agenda towards the other.

Setting a Date Karina Chan performs a monologue where a young woman is being co-erced by her mother into having a relationship, much against her better judgement. 

Frank's Black Book Performed by Ian Moffat, this monologue outlines a man's diary recollection of his first experience with internet dating - and his eventful encounter with an especially attractive female doctor. 

Perspectives Anda Magherusan and Kieran Bhalla offer an interesting slant on both parties' views on why they've ended their relationship.

The Sisters Laura Begley and Clare Heyburn play Brenda and Carol - two sisters who share a home, very limited income and a colourful barrage of expletive-fuelled arguments.

Plus other short performances in what promises to be a must-see Fringe event - so please buy your tickets now!
