Artist Development Events

Scratch Nights
Each season we offer a range of opportunities for artists to test unfinished work in front of an audience. If you are an artist wishing to show work you must be a member of Troop.

First Manoeuvres
First Manoeuvres is a twice-per-season (4 x per year) scratch night for work by Troop members in our J3 studio theatre, showing extracts of between 2 and 10 minutes of completely new material in its first outing in front of an audience on a bare stage in an open-mic style format.

Views from the ‘Bridge
VFTB is our seasonal (2 x per year) mixed bill of work in progress in our J2 theatre space. Slots are by invitation or application, to show 15-30 minutes’ worth of more developed work, with work that has been developed as part of a J3 residency the priority.

Invitations for scratch nights are sent to members of Troop when they are open for applications.
