A Pleasance Scratch

A regular theatre scratch night hosted by the Pleasance

Next Scratch - Mon 22nd October, 7.30pm

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.


Applications for the June scratch are now CLOSED.  The next scratch will be in Oct 2018, applications will open in August.


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
