About Us

Theatre Scratch Night is a collaboration between UnderConstruction Theatre Company and The Old Fire Station

Arisen out of the desire to share ideas and new work with audiences, producers and other theatre makers in the city of Oxford, UnderConstruction has developed a platform for artists, performers, writers and directors to share work in a theatre space.

Theatre Scratch was launched in July 2012, and happens in the theatre at The Old Fire Station once a season.

The night will usually consist of three pieces performed with feedback given afterwards in an open forum discussion.

Apply Now!

Do you have an idea for a performance you want to try out? Come and present up to 15 minutes of a work in progress within a supportive environment. All theatrical pieces are welcome. This could be a movement piece, a script extract, or improvised theatre that you want to experiment with. We have had seated readings, staged readings, and more fully rehearsed performances. The only prerequisite is that you wish to receive thoughtful feedback from audiences on a number of questions about the piece posed by you when applying. These questions will be presented to the audience on the night and a member of UnderConstruction Theatre company will facilitate their feedback.

Download the Theatre Scratch Application Form here.

For more information and to apply for a slot, email info@underconstructiontheatre.com.

Applications close approximately one month before the night.

Come and see bite sized chunks of exciting new developments in Oxford’s theatre scene and get the chance to give artists your feedback.
