Open Floor Scratch Night


Evening 7.30pm

Open Floor: Scratch Night

Open Floor is The Studio’s scratch night, where theatremakers and theatre companies from Edinburgh and beyond can test brand-new ideas in front of a live audience for the first time.

From comedy to politics, movement to musicals, we’re opening the floor to work at the earliest stage of development so you, the audience, can help the artists explore what works onstage. We’ll be sharing work from:

Minnesota Ice Man

Theo Seddon

Theo Seddon is a writer, director and performer. He makes funny, political and (usually) silly performances. His performances are informed by personal experience and often use elements of classic horror, myth and modern cinema.


Indra Wilson

Float is an autobiographical performance that explores how one copes with grief after losing a pregnancy as a young, queer person. The piece uses the imagery of the solar system through AV and interweaves audio clips from historic space missions, including Apollo 11 and Apollo 13, as a metaphor for the turbulent journey that pregnancy can feel like and the intense feelings of failure and isolation that often accompany pregnancy loss.

All Fired Up

Leo Shak and Emre Gozlugol

Two boys. Two family takeaways. One Friday night shift. What could possibly go wrong? Leo and Emre are emerging actors/writers from Guildford School of Acting who seek to unfold authentic stories that tend to go untold. They strive to connect with audiences through finding joy in seemingly dire situations.
