Stitchin’ Fiction seeking submissions for collaborative scratch night

Stitchin’ Fiction is new writing night where casting, rehearsing, and performing takes place in the course of a single evening.

Once a month, writers are given the chance to see their words brought to life by performers, who in turn get to hone their improvisation and workshopping skills in a relaxed atmosphere, and be on the pulse of new work. Sketches, monologues, duologues, spoken word, performance poetry – as long as it’s new!

Stitchin’ Fiction strives to create new links between passionate creatives –  pulling words off the page and into reality.
Based in the heart of North London, join in or come along to watch the newest of new writing!

Date: Tuesday 25th November

Time: 6pm for Participants – Public Scratch Performance begins 7:30pm followed by Q&A

Venue: The Boogaloo, 312 Archway Road, London, N6 5AT
