Expressions of Interest: New Regular Scratch Night in Edinburgh
Deadline: 31 March 2018
Welcoming expressions of interest from playwrights/writers, directors, actors, producers and theatre makers of all varieties for a proposed monthly scratch night in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh doesn't have a regular opportunity for theatre makers of all stripes to share work in progress, develop, network and meet audiences. Director, Laurence Cook, is putting together a proposal for a new scratch night in a central Edinburgh location which will run monthly and act as an opportunity for writers, directors, actors and theatre makers based in and around the city. The launch will be in Autumn 2018 but ahead of that he intends to gather interest from artists so he can approach the venue and funding bodies with a fuller picture of both the need and impact of the scratch night. It's his ambition for it to become a monthly professional development opportunity as well as an ever-expanding network of actors and makers in the city.
Laurence has already gathered some support but more expressions of interest will ready him to take it to the next stage and secure the venue as well as apply for public and private sponsorship. EOIs will also serve as an initial call for proposals for the first three scratch nights.
