The Peckham Pelicam seeking playwrights for ‘Etch’ Scratch Night

Etch holds a monthly theatre night held at one of South London’s most thriving new bars and arts venues, The Peckham Pelican. Etch aims to discover, nurture and support new writing whilst encouraging collaboration amongst emerging artists. They hope to provide a base and platform for development, collaboration and discussion whilst creating a fluid community of artists in need of an outlet. Etch will be sharing work at grass roots level, hoping to include curious audiences in the process of creating theatre.

As well as finding temporary collaborators who are interested in using the Etch events as a platform to try out their own ideas and work, long term collaboration is also key to their plans. They hope to find artists to work with regularly and who will be interested in working to develop Etch further into the future.

 They are currently collecting submissions for their event on 17 November. They are looking for short plays or extracts from both finished and unfinished plays but always from pieces still in development. They will provide suitable rehearsal space and the pieces will be directed and performed by professional directors and actors.

What to submit / How to apply:  If you want to see your new/ half written/barely there ideas being performed or want to get your work out there and make new contacts then send a 5 – 20 min scene to

Deadline:  20 October 2014
