Our scratch night is back this September!
What’s Scratch Crackle & POP?

Applications are now closed but why not apply to perform at our December Scratch night? Find out more here.
Dan Simpson – Avocado Economics
A generation raised on fizzy pop music and cartoon aspiration crashes into the reality of a housing crisis. As Millennials try to adult, they’re dreaming of home. Poet Dan Simpson (BBC, Glastonbury) mashes up 90s culture, over-priced brunch, and economic data to ask: what happened to our future?
Magda Barszcz – KuKi
Where do our memories live? Is there another dimension of time that our imaginary friends from the past still exist in?
“KuKi” is a sound and movement- based exploration of my childhood memories through space and time.
Members: Magda Barszcz (violin), Clara Yang (danso, flute), Bianca Watts (harp), Tal Naveh (movement)
Nina Shenkman – Yes Chef!
A group of women audition to be selected onto the popular reality tv cooking show, Yes Chef! Their time on stage is their audition – their big chance to shine – and each have a very different idea of how to do this best. The stakes are high, and they’re ready for the challenge.
Yes Chef! is silly, bonkers and asks the question: what lengths will people go to to get on tv today?
Sahera Khan – Am I Dulhan (Bride) Yet?
A Muslim woman who is seeking a marriage and wants to propose to a Muslim man, but is surprised when a Muslim man proposes to her. Does she accept or not?
Hester Welch – The Food Play: Experiment 1
In an increasingly globalised world, cultural differences may divide us. So what brings us together? Food! As part of a collaboration across the UK and Malaysia, Hester brings together storytelling, movement and food for a cross cultural experience. This experiment contributes to the shows development before it will be performed in Borneo next month at the What About Kuching Festival.
Flo O’Mahony – Not Dead Yet
This is an early stage scratch of a show about Flo being diagnosed with a terminal illness when she was 18. What do you do with that information when you’re meant to be grimacing at your UCAS application, crying about boys and scoring a tally on the Chunder Chart on a group holiday to Kavos?
Not dead yet. explores the seduction of becoming a modern day femme fatale, the desperate need to build a personal identity in our teens, and what happens when an identity you’ve built gets stripped away, even when it’s a really shit one (like dying).
