News Story

Bedevilled by writer’s block, an unsupportive partner and a bad case of the heebie jeebies thanks to the neighbour from hell, Julie Wilson Nimmo stars as a would-be children’s author seeking inspiration from an unlikely source. Written and directed by Greg Hemphill, this creepy new comedy short is a pure scream.

Produced by National Theatre of Scotland, in association with BBC Scotland, Screen Scotland, BBC Arts’ Culture in Quarantine project with support from Hopscotch Films.

"We are thrilled to be involved in the National Theatre of Scotland’s Scenes For Survival season. We’ve marvelled at the many performers and writers who have taken the leap of faith and put their work out there, stripped back, raw and as fresh as can be. And a big high five to the huge numbers of people who have flocked to the NTS website to watch these scenes. We personally hope that they have given you respite, thought and comfort during these anxious times."
