Instinct Theatre’s play Stench is about Kate, Beck and Tilly. They are three young women in their twenties, planning a quiet night together in their flat. However when Kate’s brother turns up and invites an unwelcome guest into their midst they really get the party going and things rapidly spiral out of control. As the second act opens events take a turn for the worse and soon the dynamic shifts, revealing far more about each character than they intended.

Instinct theatre also run ‘The Shakespeare collections’

The Shakespeare Collections are workshops and revision classes that focus on the GCSE Shakespeare plays. Each workshop is 90 minutes, and studies the text from a practical approach. Activities include focusing on the plot, key characters, and exam questions, and Instinct Theatre performing key scenes in classical text and in the modern translation

New year, New Me Question Time

new year

So the last two months I have had little response to my question time. I’ll try not be offended. So it is a New Year, so what about a new approach? why I hear you cry, what a jolly good idea. Nobody has probably used the word Jolly since 1803 so that’s a treat for free.

I want people to use Twitter and tweet me at steffieegg12

Tweet your New Years resolutions… Yes it fun, frivolous and pointless like one to many of my dates….



Tom’s the Word

Another fantastic month for the campaign. After the incredible success of the working class scratch night, Actor Awareness has been asked to come back and do another!  Now because the night was so positive, the next scratch night will take place in February, would you like to be involved? Im looking for 6 new 15 minute shows to put on in February at the Canal Theatre. There has been a huge out cry of various gender issues within our industry so I thought this theme would be perfect. So the next theme is “Womens night” the only 3 rules are…


  1. Just women writers and directors can take part
  2. Do not exceed 15 minutes 
  3. Submissions have to be in by the 24th of January


Interpretation of the theme is down to you as long as you follow the 3 rules above.  If you would like to be involved then please get in touch. To give you a better insight to our scratch nights below is the review of our last shows, check it out.


This month the Actor Awareness live ITV interview hit 13,000 views with myself and Andrew Ellis from This Is England, which is a huge step forward in spreading the word on the campaign. We also had the launch of the new website which looks incredible so thank you to Susan Omand.
