SCRATCH Night

Thu 21 Apr 2011 | 7.30pm | Pay what you can (or £2 ticket includes a 125ml glass of wine)

A new form to the anarchic, anything goes evening sees theatre companies, performers, writers and dancers take ten minutes to try an idea in front of an audience. Afterwards, the action moves to the bar, where the audience talks back.

The responses are not necessarily anything you want feedback on. They’re not necessarily things you want to take further. They don’t even need to be created responses; they could be ready-made. If you’d like to stand and say a few words or read from a book, it’s all allowed. These responses can be from 30 seconds to 10 minutes.

Confirmed so far for this month’s event:

N.B. Chilhowie Theatre’s production Happy D-Day, by Mairead A. Martin, uses Skype as both a practical and a thematic element. Is this the first Scottish play to incorporate this technology? Have your say here.
