Clare Finnimore attended Southwest Scriptwriters at Bristol Old Vic this month to hear actors take part in Briony Pope’s play ‘Detached’, which made the top 10% of scripts submitted to Bristol Old Vic open sessions 2018. Also performed was Matt Sander’s 12 minute, comic two-hander ‘#Me Neither’ about the unknown victims of #Me Too.
Following the very successful Scratch Nights 1 in October, Southwest Scriptwriters are staging Scratch Nights 2 aboard the Lightship Theatre in Bathurst Basin, BS1 6SG. Four professional actors (two male and two female) will give script-in-hand performances of the selected work to a paying audience in the evening of 13 March after rehearsing it with an established director during the day.
The submission deadline for Scratch Nights II is midnight on Monday, 4 February. Find out the upload address for script submissions at one of the forthcoming meetings.
