Secrets - that's the theme of series of short plays by local authors on at Scarborough Library
Supernatural thrillers, family secrets, lies, spies and secret pasts; join Beach Hut Theatre Company for the latest round of Script Hut Nights short play-readings.
Four plays will be performed on Saturday February 1 and four more on Saturday February 8 all with the theme of ‘Secrets’.
Both events are at 7.30pm in the Small Room at Scarborough Library.
The script-in-hand rehearsed readings of eight original plays by local up-and-coming writers have been developed through Beach Hut Theatre Company’s fortnightly Script Hut writing workshops. Alison Watt, an award-winning dramaturg, leads all of the workshops.
Associate director at Beach Hut Theatre Company John Pattison said: Exploring the theme of secrets, the writers have created a diverse range of entertaining stories from thrillers to comic spy tales.
“Our Script Hut Nights rehearsed readings are now taking place at 7.30pm in the Small Room which provides a more up-close and intimate space to enjoy the plays.’

Saturday February 1
Entombed by Stuart Larner
The Dark Secrets of War by Elaine Brookes
Nothing Else Matters by Dean Noon
Live and Let Fry by Sue Wilkinson
Saturday February 8
