The Newtown Girls S01E02

"Dress Up"

Things are going well for Scarlet, she’s over her jet-lag and she’s even managed to tick a few things off her list. She’s enjoying work at the bookshop, she’s found a yoga studio close to home and she’s set up her twitter account. However, she’s not having much luck finding her soul mate. So Scarlet does what any lesbian in her situation would do, and turns to her best friend for help. Having always found it difficult to say no to Scarlet, Alex reluctantly gives her the details for a private party that night. Scarlet arrives at the party all dressed up and ready for anything, however, as usually happens where Scarlet’s involved, things don’t quite turn out as planned.

The Newtown Girls

Scarlet is a girl determined to find true love in the quirky queer scene of Newtown in Sydney, Australia. If she could only figure out what it is she really wants! Scarlet returns to the ‘scene’ after years of absence to confront the typically-lesbian obstacles of ex-girlfriends, fashion faux pas, romantic advances from authority figures and a complicated relationship with her long-time best friend, Alex. Will Scarlet find what she is looking for or will pretending to be someone she isn’t result in her losing everything?
