Newsnight

An Original Sketch

Written by Amy Scarlett, with Katie Lynch and Charlotte Robert

Newsnight is a short sketch, written, performed, and designed by Amy Scarlett, Katie Lynch and Charlotte Robert, for a collection of performances at the Wimbledon College of Arts (UAL) MA Theatre Design show. The shows were all inspired by the theme of ‘Pollution’ and used puppets and masks to tell the story. The were performed to some visiting schools and open day visitors.

The short skit is a sill but educational skit, aiming to teach children about the effects of pollution. A news-anchor interviewing a scientist on her research into chemical pollution and its effects. joke is that the scientist herself has mutated due to her overexposure to the toxic chemicals, but is completely unaware.

I was the main creative force behind the character of Professor Lizardman, creating both the mask – from a mix of paper mache  and paper – and also performed as the character.
