Scratch at Contact Theatre, Manchester 12 February 2022 Tickets from £0.00 — Book now

Happening as part of Queer Contact Festival 2022, Scratch is a day of brand-new performances by a number of queer Manchester-based creatives.

Take a glimpse at some work in development – including the two recipients of the GM LGBTQ+ Arts and Culture Network bursary, Jova and the Wave and Maz Hedgehog, who share early material from their winning commissions.

In addition, Plaster Cast Theatre, Sam Danson, Taylor le Fin (with TransCreative) and Chanje Kunda will also share early-stage material of new work exploring bisexual bliss, working-class transmasculinity, LGBTQ+ mental health and queer desire.
