Lincolnshire’s hottest new writing event returns!

A Night of Comedy, Romance, Drama and Thrills!

The latest batch of local budding writers see a sample of their script brought to life by local actors at the Riverhead Theatre. Every audience member gets to vote for their favourite play anonymously via a fun and interactive points system. The play with the most votes will be performed as a full-scale production in 2020.

The ‘Scratch Night’, which has asserted itself as arguably the most innovative, immersive and entertaining event on the theatre’s social calendar is returning for it’s seventh year and is the golden opportunity to have an active say in what you would like to see at your local theatre. The event, which is open to all, is the culmination of a series of workshops held by local playwright John Hewer:

“We’ve six writers presenting their work this year, and a fantastic group of local actors to give voice to their scripts. Comedy, realism, surrealism. Something for everyone and I’m so proud that this subversive, innovative event has become such a highlight among the local community.”

Bar open from 6.30pm, show 7.30pm
