We were thrilled to launch a successful first Scratch Night 'The 10x10' in November 2019 at Mirth, Marvel & Maud! At Aktualise Theatre, we are very passionate about nurturing new theatre from plays, musical theatre to physical theatre and spoken word. The Scratch Night put a deserving spotlight on new developing work and it is a fantastic platform for theatre makers to receive feedback from a mixed audience and fellow creatives.
"Working with the Aktualise team to bring my work to life has been an absolute pleasure. Full of creativity, passion, and ideas, the team are organised and driven to make fascinating theatre and encourage new artists" Lewis Wood, Playwright
"I think the work Aktualise theatre are doing is so important; creating opportunities for new talent. I recently directed a piece at their latest scratch night and had every ounce of support they could give, they are a great team full of enthusiasm and love. It was a joy to work with them and to continue to have there support and guidance." David McNair, Director/Actor
"I felt the Scratch Night was very professionally organised, and the pieces were so varied and interesting. I find the team at Aktualise such a warm, passionate and driven bunch of people to work with. It was wonderful to be part of such a talented group of fellow creatives - writers, directors, producers and fellow performers" Maria Cole, Actor
