Scratch That Itch: Because I Say So

In Good Company Presents
Studio , Artist Development
Saturday 21 September 2019

In Good Company’s scratch night returns this September and we are ready to heat things up with some sizzling sensational opportunities. 

An excellent chance to let new work bloom and ideas crackle. 

This is an opportunity for artists to try out new work in front of an audience and get a bit of feedback to help them develop their work in the future.

We have teamed up with Notnow Collective and are focusing this scratch opportunity on parents/ carer theatre makers.

This scratch is a part of a bigger conversation we are holding in the Midlands region, within which we want to address how to introduce systemic change within the performing arts industry for parents/ carers. 

Free Creche

In our continuous commitment to artists as well as parents we are offering a FREE Creche during the show, open from 1-4pm, allowing a bit of time for some adult conversations.

The Creche is suitable for babies and children from 4 months - 12 years of age, but places are limited, so please book in advance to reserve a place.

The creche facility will be situated near the Studio, so parents will be able to check on their babies in between the pieces should they wish so. Please spread the word and take advantage of this fab offer!

Scratch That Itch: Because I say So! Line-up:

Carbon Theatre sharing LOOP

A Piece combining new writing, performance, and live looping audio to look at how loneliness can trick you into feeling content, and the steps you can take to overcome it.

Produced by Theatre In Black in association with Carbon Theatre, it’s warm, playful and honest. 

The Gramophones Theatre Company sharing Expectations 

Expectations is a theatrical audio performance for one audience member at a time.

An audience member pushes a pram while listening to the uncompromising and unsaid thoughts of a new mother. 

Farhana Shaikh sharing Risk 

Based on a true story Risk draws on lived experience, research and interviews to explore the harrowing subject of domestic abuse.

The play seeks to challenge our assumptions about who is abused and who is seen as a victim.
