Scratch nights at Battersea Arts Centre have been incredibly important to a large number of Fuel shows, particularly Will Adamsdale’s Jackson’s Way. The show started life as a 10 minute scratch back in 2004 as part of Oktoberfest at BAC. Will got great feedback which helped him craft the show over several more scratch performances.
Part theatre, part comedy, the show is a modern day parody of American motivational speakers and a satire on the world of self-help and corporate jargon.
The show premiered where it was born, in the BAC, and went to the Edinburgh Fringe to be performed at the Underbelly winning the Perrier - Edinburgh’s most coveted award – on its way. Will has scratched three more shows at the BAC: The Receipt, The Human Computer, and his new show in development Adventures in Packaging. We hope that artists we work with can create more surprising and inspiring shows in the fantastic workshop that is the BAC Scratch night in the future.
