Ever since Scenic Reality was performed as a very successful rehearsed reading at The Hope Theatre last year, Samantha and I have been really excited about giving the show a proper run. I can now announce that that time has arrived! Scenic Reality is coming to The Hen & Chickens Theatre this August as part of The Camden Fringe Festival 2019!
Four friends leave school with uncertain futures. One of them, A* student and non-binary auteur Damien Blake, wants to create something important. Film is their medium; immediate and open to manipulation. Set against a background of increasing societal pressures, rising university fees and what can be seen as a youth mental health crisis, Damien’s obsession with exploring what reality actually is starts to put a strain on their relationships.
Presented by New Room Theatre, the show will be performed at The Hen and Chickens Theatre in Islington on the 7th – 11th August at 6pm each evening, and if you can to last year’s reading, you’ll be happy to know that I’ve put your feedback to good use in terms of editing and restructuring.
Ticket have just gone on sale, so if you want to be one of the first to book tickets, now is the perfect time to do so. If you’re interested in following the production, you can like and follow our brand new Facebook page, dedicated to Scenic Reality.

This show has been a wonderful journey so far for me, Samantha and everyone else involved, and there’s still plenty to announce so be sure to follow closely to the Facebook page for more announcements leading up to the show. It’s going to be brilliant!
