Crash Test is a scratch night at which local writers are invited to share work in progress with a supportive audience. All forms of performance are welcome the only restriction is that it must involve words.
Crash Test has taken place throughout Aberystwyth and Borth over the last few years and has proved very popular with audiences, writers and performers.
Previous scratch nights have included poetry, comedy sketches, performance cabaret, stand-up comedy, short plays, short film scripts, storytelling, play excerpts. We have presented a debut stand-up comedy performance from Julie Grady-Thomas and the first ever public performance of a play in development by James Baker.
The new scratch night is produced by Scriptography Productions and offers a chance for writers from the Aberystwyth Art Centre’s Writing for Performance group to scratch their work whilst also inviting other writers to take the opportunity to test their work in an informal and friendly environment.
Scriptography productuions recently toured a new play by the Writing for Performance Group’s Catrin Fflur Huws – a play about Alan Turing called To Kill a Machine which has received one of only 10 Arts Council Wales ‘Wales in Edinburgh’ grants to take the play to Zoo Aviary from 7th – 31st August.
Scriptography Productions will also be announcing on Thursday 11th June a new call for submission of ideas as it begins the search for the next To Kill a Machine.
