Founded by Tim Marriott, SMOKESCREEN PRODUCTIONS aims to tell stories in cinematic style, supporting the work of charities with dynamic theatrical performance.


Smokescreen was awarded grants via the Chancellor's LIBOR fund to create 'Shell Shock', an adaptation of Neil Blower Watkin's biographical novel. Supporting charities such as Help For Heroes, Combat Stress, The Armed Forces Network, Heads Together and Time to Change, the play has toured to festivals, theatres and colleges in the UK, New York, Australia and New Zealand as well as 'behind the wire' at Plymouth, Saffron Waldron, Aldershot, Larkhill, Tidworth, Colchester, Catterick, Christchurch and Auckland (NZ).


'Mengele', inspired by the Holocaust themed novel 'Right to Live' by Philip Wharam, is endorsed b the Amud Aish Memorial Museum in New York. Following 5* reviewed performances at the Edinburgh Fringe, both plays were selected as 'Encore Winners' to transfer to the SoHo Playhouse in New York.


'Mengele' sold out at both Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe where 'Shell Shock' won Best Solo Show. 'Shell Shock' went on to complete a long tour of Australia from Brisbane to Melbourne to Sydney for the Invictus Games. 'Mengele' was again a Sell-Out Show at EdFringe in 2019 and won the Lustrum Award as did a new show, 'Judas'. Both 'Shell Shock' and 'Mengele' were at Adelaide Fringe in 2020 where touring was halted due to Covid-19. 

Lockdown led to a period of intense creativity with two new productions, 'Waiting for Hamlet' and 'Watson: The Final Problem' becoming audio and then stage projects, as well as developing David Visick's online monologue series, Baby Zoomers featuring Rita May (Trollied), Daisy Eagan (Tony Award Winner), Ross Marshall (Tea for Three) and Nicholas Collett (Waiting for Hamlet). 'Waiting for Hamlet' was nominated for Best Play (Dark Chat) at EdFringe '22, where Tim Marriott won the award for the Best Performance. Watson was The Scotsman's 'Fringe Favourite' and sold out at EdFringe '21 and '22 - for tour enquiries click: Something For The Weekend


Smokescreen Productions is affiliated to the film production company Smokescreen Visuals. 'Shell Shock' is in post-production as a vlog-style film project created for the Armed Forces Network. 'Revelation', a feature-length drama, based on a novel by Tim Marriott, is currently in development. The book will be published later this year. The opening chapter is available here.
