A Tamasha Virtual Scratch Night

2020. A year to remember. And a year of change. And change we must.

Every year, we've been asking you to send us new short scripts, on any subject, with those selected few being scratched in front of a live audience. But a certain virus that shall not be named has pooped all over that, so Plan B: we adapt and take it all online.

As we've all spent a lot of time in our respective homes this year, we thought, why not get creative and set HOME as our theme. This didn't have to be too on-the-nose - we were looking for a wide range of creative responses. So whether you had a piece about what home meant to you during the last few months, or if home was another country, a smell, a memory, a person - it was completely up to you.

Over 80 artists submitted their plays and after a very competitive selection process, we have narrowed this down to six gripping short plays we will present:

Previous scratch night audience feedback:

"I love the Tamasha scratch nights. Always interesting, challenging, great way for artists to try stuff out."

"Meaningful, universal, engaging, worthwhile."

"Really good event. I am a writer, just starting off and it was a fantastic experience to be able to witness (rather than just read) and contribute to ‘work in progress’ – thanks for the opportunity."
