From Scratch

On July 28th a new event is coming to SE1. A Friend of a Friend is continuing to support new writing, an this time we’re looking at how we can develop and encourage emerging playwrights and new work. With this in mind, we have designed a series of bi-monthly events whose aim is to give artists an opportunity to try new things, and see how they are received across a multitude of genres: rehearsed readings, new musical recitals or art installations.

We hope to incorporate a sense of professional camaraderie and collaboration within our industry; Each event will benefit from the experience and wisdom of relevant industry practitioners. These Experts will both give verbal feedback on each new piece as well as lead a discussion that reflects the concerns and interests of our participants and audience.

The inaugural From Scratch is a new writing event presenting five short plays.

Take Part in our Scratch Nights

Calling all playwrights!

From Scratch is our new programme of Scratch nights, which kicks off at the end of July. If you’d like to get involved, just send in your short play and we’ll let you know if you’re selected for the inaugural performance of this new bi-monthly event. At the end of each reading there will be a panel lead session for feedback to the playwrights involved so that you can continue to develop your work. This is an ideal opportunity for new playwrights to dip their toes in the water, or for experienced playwrights wanting to try out something new.

To get involved, simply email us your 10 minute play: info@afriendofafriendtheatre.com

It is important that you follow these guidelines:

– each play must be submitted as a single word / pdf document containing

1. a cover page containing the play’s name, your name and your email address

2. a character list

– please make sure that the file name is the name of your play, followed by your name

– in order to be considered towards the July From Scratch, please submit your play script no later than 10th July

We have an archive of short plays that we constantly refer back to – both for our principal productions and now also for our Readings. This means that even if you are not selected in this instance, we may still be able to include you in future productions. We always contact our playwrights before using their work, no matter how long it has been since they sent it in to us, so don’t panic, we won’t use your words without your knowledge!

So what are you waiting for? Get writing!
