Capital Theatres: Open Floor Scratch Night

Closing date: Sun 1 Oct 2023: 11pm

Capital Theatres are looking for Scottish theatre makers to take part in their scratch night, Open Floor, on Wed 1 November 2023 at The Studio, Edinburgh.

Open Floor is an opportunity to get something up on its feet in front of an audience and see what does and doesn’t work. This time they’re opening up the opportunity to theatremakers of all kinds and all genres so go ahead and throw your hat in the ring.

They’re keeping this quick and dirty so think a few lighting or sound cues, basic video projection, nothing too technical.

Here’s what they can offer:
– A slot to perform 10-15 mins of material
– A fee of £450 for your performance
– Professional photographs of your performance
– Feedback from the night

– Closing date: Sun 1 October 2023, midnight
– Decisions shared: Wed 4 October 2023
– Performance date: Wed 1 November 2023

Eligibility Criteria
• You must be based in Scotland
• You must have worked on at least one professional production or R&D process previously. This can include Fringe performances but not university productions or amateur dramatics.
• You must not be in receipt of RFO funding from Creative Scotland.
• You must be available to tech during the day and perform on the night of Wed 1 November 2023
• You must be applying for a new project that has not already been commissioned, produced or coproduced, or staged by another organisation
