Scene + Heard – Week 1 – Smock Alley Theatre – Preview

From the 14th of Feb to the 3rd of March

It’s almost impossible to pick the best events from the Scene + Heard festival at Smock Alley. It’s a festival of new theatre makers and a lot of the productions are at an early stage. Still, we had an insider in the camp who gave us a few tips of the ones that should not be missed!

We’d recommend you take a few chances and have a look at their  Interactive PDF Programme here.

Find our top tips for week one below –
