Scratch Reading

Scratch ReadingHosted by Progress Theatre, Scratch Reading is a fantastic new opportunity for aspiring writers of all levels, as well as a great evening out for those who love new writing and want to support local talent.


Several brand new scripts will be performed at each event; providing a great opportunity for playwrights to see their work onstage. There will be a discussion and Q&A session with the audience at the end to give the authors valuable feedback. Scripts will be rehearsed in the afternoon and performed in the evening (script in hand). 


To submit a script for performance, please join our partner group Reading Playwrights. For more information please email


Entry to the audience will just be ¬£2 on the door. 


Doors open 7.15pm. Performance starts 7.45pm.
