Scratch 13, some Live Theatre Sketching (& Toxic Shopping)

So, Scratch 13 , for which I did this poster.

Another of the unique (ongoing) cultural events, right here in the city.


Scratch@Fruit aims to showcase new pieces of work for the theatre and reveal the creative process to audience members.

Pieces are, generally, performed ‘script-in-hand’ by actors from the region.

The evenings, which sprang into life in January 2011, are produced by award-winning theatre company Ensemble 52 and curated and compered by Hull-based playwright Dave Windass.

Audiences are invited to provide feedback to theatre makers and play an active role in the development of the work.

Ensemble 52 and Dave Windass have worked with over 70 writers and provided a stage for them to develop their work during the last two years.

I did these doodles while actors warmed up and rehearsed on and off the stage.

But… my main/(ulterior?) reason for being there that evening was that for the first time since becoming involved with the event (as just a promo designer until that point)…

Well… I’d submitted a script.

A reworking of THIS, and THIS… originally done as a comics script

And… these guys performed it… right there, in front of an audience…

That’s been a high point of this year I must say…

I’m definitely looking forward to more of this.

Which I guess brings me to… THIS
