We're always wanting to meet new folk to collaborate with. Before getting in touch, read on for info on how to get involved…


In the run up to Itch + Scratch 5, we met 150 new actors at our open auditions. This is something we will continue to do, when working towards each production. Follow us on social media and sign up to our mailing list to be the first to find out when we announce the next auditions.


We source all our work from open submissions, and invite writers to send us their work during a specific window, working up towards each event. We'll give a short brief which we ask all writers to strictly adhere to, but welcome work from writers at any point in their career. 

Once a play has been submitted, it is read by at least 2 members of our team. We then create a shortlist - shortlisted plays are read aloud, anonymously, by a trusty team of theatre makers.
