To coincide with Phil Collins's solo exhibition Ceremony, Cooper Gallery will collaborate with SCRIEVE, a playwriting scratch night hosted by AMBERGRIS to stage two special events featuring a selection of short plays by Dundee and Fife based playwrights that respond to the topics of Engels' thinking, the condition of the working class today and the ongoing impact of austerity explored in Ceremony.

If you are interested in submitting a short play for these events or in volunteering to be a reader, please contact


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 place where playwrights of any experience can share new work, hearing their scripts read aloud, often for the very first time.
SCRIEVE can only operate with the generous support of many talented volunteers.
AMBERGRIS also hosts TABLE-READ THURSDAYS, an informal development space for writers who have had their work read at SCRIEVE.
