WHAT IS A SCRATCH NIGHT?
A scratch night is a platform for artists, theatre-makers and performers to ‘test’ out their ideas in front of a live audience. Most often, the projects are works-in-progress and offer artists a chance to gain invaluable feedback which assist theatre-makers in the development of their piece.
