A jam-packed night of new theatre writing and creative conversations – biggest night yet! Presenting three brand new 15-minute plays created by writers from Partick and beyond. Afterwards, you are invited for drinks and  creative conversations – a chance to meet the writers and performers, and join this growing theatrical community.

HOW THE NIGHT WORKS After a brief introduction, you will see 3 short plays for a script-in-hand reading. The actors will be reading from their scripts on stage, and the plays will have only been lightly rehearsed – so seeing these pieces in their rawest form.

After each play you will meet the playwright on stage for a short discussion, which you can get involved in too – this is a great opportunity to help writers improve their work and give them lots of encouragement!

There will be a short interval (10 mins approx) after the first two plays – a chance to grab another drink! – and return for the final play.

Afterwards, at around 10.15ish, get together downstairs in the bar for a friendly chat and to congratulate the  actors and writers.


he entire night will be filmed and posted for free on YouTube. This has several benefits – it means people who can’t attend in person are able to check out the plays, and it allows volunteering actors to get material for their showreel.

If you would prefer not to be filmed for any reason, please mention this when you arrive at the event and you will be blurred you out.

To make theatre more accessible for everyone the scratch night will be filmed and made available on YouTube. By attending you agree you are happy to be recorded.
