Over To You – A Tamasha Scratch Night
Friday 25 May
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
An evening of scratch performances of bold new writing plus a Q&A with the creative team
After a nationwide call out for new short plays, Tamasha, one of the UK’s leading touring theatre companies present new pieces inspired by the diversity of our globalised world.
The theme for the night is open. Tamasha set the challenge for writers to submit the plays a company like theirs – a diverse, cutting edge touring theatre company of 27 years – should be producing. After a vigrourous selection process, Tamasha will present the best 4-5 short plays at this, their famed scratch night. The floor will be well and truly the artists.
The four gripping short plays that will be present are:
Finding José by Amal Chatterjee
Graveyard Girlz by Lakesha Arie-Angela
Other Please Explain by Lynsey Martenstyn
The Affairs of Men by Sid Sagar
A Q&A with the collaborating artists will follow the performances.
Join the award-winning theatre company as they showcase work from the future voices of British theatre.
What to Expect
Professional actors will perform script-in-hand new work from the UK’s most exciting playwrights

"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."
