The Series

The Newtown Girls is a 8x10 minute webseries created to entertain and engage online audiences and explore the foibles of love and friendship - experiences common to everyone! Although it revolves around lesbian characters, their trials and triumphs are universal and transcend sexual orientation. The Newtown Girls was created with the intent to depict lesbian relationships in a more realistic and comedic way. It does not overtly preach political opinions or rehash the usual 'coming out' stories that dominate queer storytelling. The Newtown Girls looks at situations that arise when you go looking for love and how you often end up finding love where you least expect it!

Scarlet is our social experiment and she embodies all of our insecurities and flaws. She thinks she knows what she wants, she thinks she knows what needs to be done in order to get what she wants, but she quickly learns that knowing what you want and getting it are two very different things.

Starring:
Scarlet - Debra Ades (Newcastle)
Alex - Renee Lim (East West 101)
Veronica - Kylie Watson (Home and Away)
Kym - Kate Austin (225)

Created by: Natalie Krikowa, Emma Keltie & Elyse Horne
