What to expect at Scratch Preston: April

 

Tobias Doyle - Is this the Modern Man?

One boys struggle to find out what it means to be a man. Exposing the preconceptions we have of ‘Manliness’, this performance will take you on a journey, bouncing back and forth between childhood memories, the concept of ‘man points’ and a father’s conversation with his son. An autobiographical piece that inter-weaves these elements and offers no answers... just one boys experience
 

George Richards - 10 Minutes to Now

Have you ever tried to summarize your whole life in ten minutes? No, neither have I, till now. This text is exactly that, it’s a swirling whirlpool of rhyming, time scaling, moment reliving and memory sharing. Including my conception, school life, my close call with appendicitis and my roller-coaster 20 years so far. All in a desperate attempt to work out how I’ve become who I am today and the person
I’ve become so far.

 

Sarah Leahy - A Mermaids Dream Of Being That Ham Subway

This is the story about a girl becoming a plain ham subway through high flying kicks, tossed salad and a cucumber confined to the naughty bowl.

Garry Cook with special guest performer Charlotte Brown - 

Pub Karaoke Photography Exhibition

Watch photographer Garry Cook exhibit photography like you’ve never before – while performing classic pub karaoke songs, subverting both the song lyrics and the concept of a photography exhibition to deliver a unique critique of modern-day culture. The first project is set of documentary images about unhealthy living called Drinking, Eating, Puking. Following that is a project called Breastfeeding Re-enactments. Taken by photographer Rosie Burrows, they feature conceptual artist Claire Doyle in a variety of breastfeeding poses referencing classical art portraits. If you’re a fan of the objectification of women’s breasts and are a misogynist, you’ll love this one.


Scratch Preston is hosted by They Eat Culture’s resident theatre company Tin Can People. Tin Can People is made up of Rob Gregson, Charlotte Berry & Chloe Stollery.
