Scratch is Back!

Our Create Scratch Refine Repeat competition is back for a second year.

Following the success of last year’s competition and performances we are again offering the opportunity to theatre companies to showcase their work in progress in preparation for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Morley College is looking for four theatre companies or artists to present 10-15 minutes of scratch work across two nights to a live audience and a panel of industry judges.

The panel of judges will provide feedback on development of the work and one company or artist will be selected to perform their full length Edinburgh preview show in July in our Studio Theatre space.

To enter the competion complete the Morley Scratch Night Application Form and return to us by Wednesday 10 February at 13:00. We aim to inform all applicants by Friday 19 February if they have been successful. 

1 winner will receive: 
Rehearsal space (subject to availability)
Box office split from July preview show 

3 runners up will receive:
25% off a course in our new Making Theatre programme

Scratch night event will take place on: 
Thursday 17 March 19.30
Friday 18 March 19.30
Tech run Wednesday 16 March 10:00 – 17:00
(rehearsal space will be provided on the Thursday and Friday)

Each project should:

  1. Provide any props they might need themselves.
  2. Advise us in advance of any sound requirements regarding amplifiers, MICs or sound clips/backing music (either on an iPod or CD) & provide their own sound operator.
  3. The lighting designer will provide a state that lights the whole space in order to suit everybody’s needs.
