FROM SCRATCH has been in Providence, Rhode Island for five years. Since we started, many amazing theater-makers shared the very beginnings of their work with us. What a treat! Some went on to become full length productions. Some, well, were one-off experiments of work that was never meant to be and became just for us. A handful of artists have even gone on to earn grants and fellowships, artists residencies, and more. It's exciting to experience the magic of ten minutes in a black box theater.

But we're switching it up this year. We are going to be taking some time off in the Fall of 2019 to bring heads together and make something happen for 2020. 

In the meantime - if you have fond memories of scratching, please send them to Corinne at She's compiling a number of these stories. Pictures too! Thank you in advance for sharing!
We're booking for the season NOW!
We're looking for artists and companies to SCRATCH.  We have ten minute slots available starting in 2020. Please leave your name, email, genre, and a brief description of what you aim to share.  We're happy to have you!  We'll follow up with details and dates.   

 *Details include more info on our new artist guarantees!

FROM SCRATCH will feature up to six artists or companies presenting work around ten minutes long. Scratches are very new, very experimental iterations of work - nothing polished, nothing held back. Each night will be an opportunity to see how new performance and theater work is made in a variety of disciplines including devised theater, spoken word/comedy, new writing, and dance. Just being in the room helps artists develop their work further. Feedback is also highly encouraged, an exciting opportunity for audiences to directly influence the development of new work.
