Scratch that Itch

A juicy assortment of open-call work created by performers who are itching for an audience...

SCRATCH THAT ITCH is an open-call, work-in-progress night; hosted by the fresh-off-the-boat-from-North-London Drag King, Laz Lightning.

Expect an eclectic evening of new writing, music, drag, cabaret, comedy & spoken word, all created by performers who are ITCHING for an audience.

Created & Produced by Naz Simsek.

Audience feedback from the last scratch night:

"It’s hard to find an inclusive space to start out as a performer but SCRATCH THAT ITCH creates a warm, beautiful & supportive atmosphere where you’re allowed to make mistakes"

"Bangers after bangers after bangers!"
