The Leytonstone Itch seeking 5-10 minute scenes

The Leytonstone Itch a bi-monthly night at Leytonstone’s award winning ‘All You Read is Love’ ( It is a scratch night like no other, an opportunity to try out ideas and share new work in a warm supportive environment. You can get feedback, make friends and contacts, or simply be inspired! We are looking for acts and audience members for our next event Sunday 9th October at 4pm. It can be anything – music, theatre, dance, comedy, and everything in between!

We have been running this event since July 2015 and it has been hugely popular with artists and audiences across London. Check out for more information and regular updates.

For Performers – Want to share your work? Please send us a short sample of your piece or idea. This can be a video/recording, a sample of the text, or simply a proposal outlining the idea and your background as an artist. We will consider the piece for our lineup.

For Writers: Blindly Cast Readings

One of the highlights of The Itch event are our ‘blindly-cast readings’. Writers submit 5-10 minute scenes or plays and three are chosen to be read and discussed on the night. We assemble a group of readers and cast them against type. They then have 15 minutes to prepare and share the scene. Audiences love it and writers will testify how useful it is to see your work performed in a very different way and get feedback from audiences. Feeling brave? Submit a 5-10 minute extract or play to us or volunteer as a reader.


Please email for more info, to volunteer as a reader, or to submit your ideas & plays. Deadline September 27th, & the lineup will be chosen by Oct 1. Any idea you send will be considered for future Itches if not chosen this time.

Deadline: 27 September 2016
