Wednesday 1 June | 7.00pm | Nottingham Playhouse
We’ve had a very tough time selecting the 10 scripts submitted – by you – for inclusion in our first Scratch Night.  We were overwhelmed with submissions, and would have loved to present them all, but after much deliberation the final shortlist is as follows:
·       Bush by Kei Bailey
·       Sin by Colin Henchley
·       It is for Charity by Susan Spence
·       Knit Two Together by Marilyn Ricci
·       An Empty Chair by Katherine Boon
·       Brenda – Woman of 55 by Alison Belbin
·       The Heist by Jack Dawes
·       Time Never Wait by Sundeep Singh Maan
·       Year Zero by Nicholas Shelton
·       Withering Hearts by Jane Wilton
On the night, each 5-minute script will be read by members of The Actors’ Workshop to an audience at the Playhouse.  This audience will then have the opportunity to vote for their favourite five scripts – and the chosen writers will be asked to develop their ideas into 10-minute plays to be performed a week later at Scratch Night 2!

Remember – tickets are FREE, but you must book, as capacity is limited.

    Sounds really. Unfortunately I can’t attend so sending you my best wishes electronically for the first of many such nights.

    Experimental theatre: sharp, short and hopefully thoroughly entertaining. Can’t wait.
