Very Rascals accepting submissions for Scratch That

Do you have a short script that you want to showcase or a scene that you want to test out in front of an audience? Then this might be for you. 

Very Rascals are looking for new scripts, roughly 10-15 minutes in length, to be a part of their scratch night. They have to share the theme of communication, and whatever that brings to mind for you. Please submit scripts that have no more than 4 performers. ​They will then read all submissions with their pool of directors, and together they will pick the pieces.

The Performance:  Your play will be cast using professional actors, who will rehearse with the director over zoom in the three weeks leading up to the performance.

On the Night:We will make sure to fill the zoom with creatives and friendly faces, along with any friends/family/loved ones that you want to invite. The audience will be emailed feedback forms to help you figure out where you would like to take the piece and if it’s hitting the notes you wanted. The performance will be recorded and you will be free to share it far and wide!

Venue: Online

When: 23rd April

Who They Are Looking For:

We want to create a platform for under-represented people in our society and make sure voices from these groups are being heard. If you identify as a woman, non-binary, a person of colour or are from a low income background we would especially love to hear from you; let us know if we can do anything to help you get your work to us. As a fledgling company we are currently working as a profit share but we will do everything we can to keep promoting your work after the night is over.

How to apply: Please send your script to with the subject line:

The deadline for submission is the 19th of March 2021.

We will make sure we get back to everyone who has sent in their script by the 22nd of March.

Things to Remember:

The script should be 10-15 minutes. 

Have no more than 4 performers. 

We are accepting scripts with the theme of “communication”.
