They receive new work from writers from all different backgrounds and levels (sometimes up to 400 submissions) and a team of readers narrow it down to 5 or 6 pieces. They cast them, rehearse them in only 4 hours – and bring them to life! Sharp Scratches are dedicated to championing new writers and getting their work up onstage. Each scratch as a different edition, hoping to facilitate and ignite necessary conversation, they are not here to shy away from difficult topics. This scratch, November 25th, is the LGBTQ+ edition - Sharp Scratches are showcasing some stories that otherwise are ignored or overlooked. Let's start a conversation by injecting some necessary new voices into theatre. It’s just a sharp scratch.
