A Pleasance Scratch

A regular theatre scratch night hosted by the Pleasance

Next scratch - Monday 1st July 2019

A Pleasance Scratch is an evening of variety, ideas and fun; a chance to see artists present brave, new work at the first stages of development.

The Pleasance is proud to support a large number of developing artists every year through our various Pleasance Futures initiatives, and this is an opportunity for you to have the first glimpse at what these talented young theatre makers are creating next.

The next Scratch will be on Monday 1st July 2019 at 7:30pm. Call out for submissions will open in May. Please sign up to our Futures Newsletter or follow us on Twitter @PleasanceFuture to be the first to hear.


We provide:

  • Mentoring and support from our team
  • A slot in our Main House theatre to share your 10 minute piece of work-in-progress with an audience and get their feedback
  • Basic technical support for the event

Each project should:

  • Provide any props the performance requires
  • Provide all technical requirements with as much notice as possible
  • Be available all day on the day of the event
