The Brighton Scratch Night

The Brighton Scratch Night are looking for new scripts on any subject. Six scripts will be staged at The Rialto Theatre, Brighton from 15 – 17 October. One script will go on to be produced at Brighton Fringe 2020.

We’re looking for extracts, not short plays. All pieces should be over at least thirty minutes, as the overall winner will go on to be programmed into an hour fringe slot.  If you have a piece of work that is less than thirty minutes, we would want to see some potential for it to be extended for it to be considered.

All applicants must send in a synopsis, their chosen fifteen minute extract, and, if possible, the full script

All scripts must be emailed as a pdf. Please ensure scripts are proof read and formatted appropriately

Please tell us where you are based and how involved you could be in the process. We would like a brief outline of your location and availability across the programme.

We’re looking for new pieces. We are not looking for any previously produced work (rehearsed readings are fine)

There is no exact cast limit/ staging restrictions, but please be aware these would be for scratch performances

Returning authors/ reworked pieces are absolutely encouraged.

All work to be sent to with a brief cover letter. Submissions are open now and will close at midnight on 24th August 2019. Find out more
