Scratch Nites

Artscomp 12 Men
Just out of prison
3 writers
100 hours to make a play

From Only Connect Theatre's The Freedom Project, a new initiative working with prisoners, ex-offenders and people at risk of crime. 

Actors on The Freedom Project were recruited in March and April 2009 as they approached release from Pentonville Prison. They have been working with professional writers to develop a 45 minute performance about the lives they lead.

Scratch Nites
23-27 June 2009
Only Connect Theatre
32 Cubitt Street WC1X 0LR

Tickets from The Pleasance Theatre box office (performance at Only Connect)

This is Only Connect's second major project, the first being Any Which Way in 2008. "Acted with such power and pathos… makes genuine theatrical history": Any Which Way was the Evening Standard Critic's Choice.

Seating for Scatch Nites is unreserved as this will be a promenade performance – be prepared to move around to follow the action. If you haven't experienced promenade theatre before, you are in for a real treat.

As King's Cross residents and workers we are so lucky to have this theatre company as part of our community. As with any local facility we need to use it or lose it. Having said that, I was gobsmacked when I saw Any Which Way, I will not be missing Scratch Nites for anything! 

I cannot recommend this company highly enough.
