NOT SO NICE! are proud to present a brand new Scratch Night performance designed to showcase local theatre makers in Edinburgh. The stimulus of the project is 'In Bloom'. As spring fast approaches, we will all start to see the seasons change with flowers reemerging having somehow survived the harsh cold winter. We started to think about how plants always manage to bloom in the face of adversity. In this ever-evolving world, we are constantly battling difficulties beyond our control; emotional, financial, cultural, societal etc. So how do you succeed when the odds are stacked against you? We have selected five playwrights who are creating 10 minute scripts which explore the stimulus of IN BLOOM.

We are seeking Directors for this scratch night. To apply you must:

- Live in Edinburgh or be willing to travel to Edinburgh for rehearsals (this event is unfunded so travel costs will not be reimbursed)

- Have good availability during evenings and weekends in April 2024 for rehearsals. (We can work around any existing commitments)

- Be available all day on the 03/05/24 for the tech, dress and show at the venue.

If you fit the above criteria then we encourage you to apply! Whether you are a professional director or have never directed before, as long as you are passionate we want to hear from you.

Production timeline:
24/03/24 - Deadline for directors submissions.
26/03/24 - Successful directors confirmed.

April 2024 - Rehearsals for the show. 
03/05/24 - 'In Bloom' Performance at Augustine United Church, Edinburgh.

Due to this being an unfunded event, Not So Nice! are providing an equal profit share of ticket sales. This will include playwrights, actors, directors, tech.
