The Scratch

Performed by our Acting for New Writing Students

Our regular scratch nights take place in February, June & October every year and are well-attended by industry professionals. We encourage our scratch performances to also act as networking events, so if you're interested in new theatre do come on down and say hello. Add yourself to our mailing list to make sure you never miss out on an event.

We love hearing from under-represented, female/non binary and working class voices.
