Bechdel Testing Life Scratch Night seeking conversation submissions

On 21 January 2017, Theatre Delicatessen chase away the post-Christmas blues with a festive drink or 2, at their Scratch Night of Conversations by Bechdel Theatre.

(Tickets to the event are available here.)

The confirmed Directors include:

  • Blythe Stewart (Southwark Playhouse, The Bunker Theatre)
  • Suzette Coon (Southwark Playhouse)
  • Floriana Dezou (Rewrite Theatre)
  • Nastazja Domaradzka (No Offence Theatre)

It’s not too late to be a part of this Scratch Night of Conversations.

What to submit:  Take some time to sit down and talk face-to-face with another woman who’s important to you (could be a family member, friend, frenemy, partner, inspiration, teacher – whoever springs to mind and is willing) and simply record the conversation.

The topic is your choice – whether it be dinner plans or family memories, just keep the tape rolling to capture a little slice of reality.

These recordings will be given to the writers and directors, who will take inspiration from their words and relationships to create an evening of theatre that combines verbatim conversations with original new writing.

You can choose the level of anonymity you are happy with for your submission.  Full details are available on their website.

How to apply:  The deadline for sending in your conversations is 3rd January, so make time over the festive season for a chat with your nearest and dearest and send it to

Deadline: 3 January 2017
