‘Trouble at Sea: A Miss McSkimming Mystery’ – WAF 2020

Following our award-winning production of The Final Adventure of Frankie Fightwell by Chris Buxey (Stage Door New Writing Award 2018), we return to the Wandsworth Arts Fringe with a radio play recorded in front of a live audience (hilarious sound effects included).

Miss McSkimming takes to the high seas in her second adventure, presented by Blackshaw Theatre.  Expecting a pleasant transatlantic cruise, Miss McSkimming must instead deal with a missing companion and a series of mysterious thefts, all whilst trying to avoid panic amongst her fellow passengers.

A rollicking comedy with mysteries abounding, this piece promises to delight audiences, young and old!

You can listen to ‘Some Treachery: A Miss McSkimming Mystery‘, her first adventure, on our podcast.

The show will run alongside a series of educational outreach events – a radio playwriting and producing workshop, a Q&A with the show creators, and 1-3 internships for Wandsworth residents and students wanting to gain experience in producing theatre and radio.

*Our 10th Anniversary(!) show is currently on pause – due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Wandsworth Arts Fringe 2020 has been cancelled, so Miss McSkimming will not be setting sail, as scheduled, on 10th May. We’re hoping to postpone to later in the year, and will shout out the details as soon as we have them. The internship programme and writing workshop have also been suspended for the time being.
