Playwriting Scratch Night



* Event Postponed *

To keep our communities and friends safe and well, and to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we have come to the decision to postpone the exhibition and all events until further notice.


Thursday 9 April 6–8pm

To accompany the exhibition A is for Avant-Garde, Z is for Zero, Cooper Gallery are hosting SCRIEVE's regular playwriting scratch night. Writing are invited to respond to the exhibition themes drawing inspiration from the work and theories of Laura Mulvey & Peter Wollen, sharing new writing in a supportive environment.

If you are interested in submitting a short play for this event; in volunteering to be a reader or would like to come along and listen, please contact SCRIEVE directly by emailing:

SCRIEVE is a playwriting scratch night hosted by AMBERGRIS, an award-winning Dundee Theatre Company (Scotsman Fringe First Award for DUPed, 2018).
SCRIEVE is a supportive and collaborative space where playwrights of any experience can share new work, hearing their words read aloud, often for the very first time. SCRIEVE can only operate with the generous support of many talented volunteers.
