"Saw It Here First Productions" was started by Elene Hadjidaniel in 2018. Being involved in previous scratch nights featuring many gifted writers, directors & performers, we now want to give the same opportunities to

those looking for a new platform to share their talent and

try out original,  untried material, as well as raise money for charities.

We invite writers to submit their scripts at a run time of 10 to 15 (max) minutes. Scripts are then chosen and directors are engaged to work on these scripts with actors to create a finished show.  These are then showcased to theatre goers and industry professionals at a London based venue. Some plays  that have had their debut with us have gone onto larger events in the performing world  - such as the Vault Festival in London.

This is a not for profit based group, as we are purely focused on raising money for local charities and giving our theatre makers exposure, the chance to take part in creating something outstanding to help further their careers and to provide top quality entertainment.
