Call out for Play Full: A Scratch Night

Play Full Theatre began in November 2022. We set out to produce fun, collaborative, and engaging events to foster the work of emerging artists in Scotland. Following a sold out scratch night in January, Play Full Theatres are looking for 10 minute pieces to be performed at their next event in Glasgow on 13th April.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop a short play or extract of a longer piece with support from a dramaturgical session and in rehearsal with a director and actors. Pieces will be performed to a live audience and audience members will have the opportunity to offer written feedback.

They’re initially asking for proposals for scripts and non-traditional theatre performances. If your piece is selected, you will be invited to a dramaturgy session on 13th March to discuss your ideas and a sample of your work with a dramaturg. Then you will have the opportunity to work further on the piece until late March when final scripts will be due.



  • The proposal should be for a performance that is 10 minutes long – this can be a short play or an extract from a longer piece
  • Your proposed performance should not already be a finished piece so you can benefit from the dramaturgical support
  • It should not have been produced or performed before
  • They are looking for a mix of genres, topics and styles so it is completely up to you what sort of performance you would like to submit
  • In addition to scripts, they are interested in non-traditional theatre performances or experiences which can be adapted to a scratch night audience (see Bear Hunt from our scratch night in January as an example)
  • They do not have provisions for tech so are looking for pieces that can be staged minimally
  • Please only submit your proposal if you are happy to work with a dramaturg to develop your piece
  • f selected, you must be available for a 1 hour dramaturgy session on Monday 13th March – this can be in person in Glasgow or virtually
  • You do not have to attend the rehearsal or scratch night event on Thursday 13th April in Glasgow, however, they think creatives would benefit from seeing their piece performed.



9am on Monday 6 March 2023.
