Oh what a night...
On Friday 27th September 2019 Angry Bear Scratches for… made it's triumphant return, this time presented at the Royal Court Theatre!
Now, I say triumphant because for the last ABSf... we raised a wonderful £659.68 for charity. Well this time, together with our glorious audience and ludicrously talented artists, we only went and (almost) DOUBLED it, to...
...for Coppafeel!, who do amazing work raising breast cancer awareness. More detailed information on their work can be found: HERE
This time the jumping off point for writers was: Get It Off Yer Chest and we had a cut off point of 225 anonymous submissions, which you crazy kids duely smashed that in the first 8 MINUTES. Crazy dayz. From those submissions we whittled it down to these beasts:
