Scratch Night

FUTURE LIMERICK: Climate Arts Festival


SCRATCH NIGHT promises to be a bold and exciting night of new writing, featuring Limerick’s freshest acting, directing and playwriting talent. Our selection of ten minute plays explores the future of the climate in a myriad of different ways, delving into sci-fi, fantasy, dystopia and comedy. With all profits from the performances going straight to the creatives, this is a brilliant opportunity to support the next generation of Limerick’s creative talent.

Scratch Night is based around the theme of ‘what we thought would never happen….’

In I WANNA BE COOL by Eleanor O’Brien, three women in a mysterious train carriage ponder hedonism, past pleasures and future fears as they hurtle irrevocably into the future. In 2050 by Niall Carmody, two primary school teachers in a dystopian Ireland must grapple with their consciences as new healthcare measures are brought in. In WHALE by Rosa Mäkelä. villagers tell of the day a huge whale washed up on their shore and changed their lives forever. In AMELIA by Dee Roycroft a family in a toxic world try to control their strange new pet, while in PLANIMALS Mark Lawrence delivers a hilarious and inventive new take on Noah’s Ark.

Join us for a night of gripping, original and vital creativity at Belltable, hosted by Sunday’s Child Theatre and Lime Tree Theatre | Belltable.
