Actor Awareness are launching an online virtual Scratch Night. They will try and run this as close to how they would normally run a scratch night as possible.
They are looking for 4 monologues/ duologues and the theme is just comedy. Stuck in isolation, with anxiety, worry & it’s easy to get down in the dumps. So that’s why they want to lift your spirits and not let you get morbid in covid. The monologues/ duologues have to be pieces of new writing, between 10-12 minutes & have to be under the theme of comedy.
This is a fast turn around so they will have a weeks submission period, a short rehearsal & filming period and then the show. How it will work is after the submission period ends: they will choose the final 4, get in contact and you pre record your monologue/ duologue, send it back to them, they edit it together and stream it as a scratch night with a host and industry feedback etc. This will be a paid opportunity & will be £25 per person, maximum 2 people per group.
How to apply?
The show will be on 11/05/2020 at 19:30. Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with Actor Awareness Comedy Scratch in the subject line. Please only attach your script, your name and a short synopsis of the piece, nothing else, no CV, as they like blind casting.
Deadline: 3pm 27th April 2020
