SCRATCH THAT is a new artist development programme for playwrights from typically underrepresented backgrounds.
s+k will support you to develop an existing idea and transfer it from the page to the stage in just four weeks.
Scratch That was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, and I'm very grateful

Olu Adaeze | @Oh_Adaeze
Graduating form the University of Westminster with a BA (Hons) Business Management and MA in Human Resource Management, Olu had been completely unaware that anything vaguely creative could be a career choice. When she began writing short stories aged 8, it was to navigate a traumatic time - it helped communicate her thoughts and create fantasy worlds she herself could inhabit.
Olu is now both a Writer and Performer - who attributes her storytelling passions to fables, metaphors and riddles used by adults around her whilst growing up. She also attributes it to her life experiences and to her boundless curiosity about life and people. Olu's work has been part of two Old Vic Lab programmes with full length plays, a showcase with WoLab/Theatre N16 held at Bunker Theatre and a soon to come piece for Young Vic (due 2019).
