And welcome to our website!
We've been putting on theatre productions in Edinburgh for almost 60 years We tend to do four a year. A mix of contemporary to classic.
So recent years have seen us do shows by people like Mark Ravenhill, Abi Morgan, Patrick Marber, Martin McDonagh and Caryl Churchill. But we've also revisited classics from Brecht, Sophocles and of course, Mr William Shakespeare.
We're always on the lookout for new people to get involved. So whether you're interested in appearing on stage or keeping busy behind the scenes, do get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
We're excited to announce our 60th Anniversary Season for 2014. In the spring we'll be producing the UK amature premier of Tracy Letts' pulitzer prize winning August: Osage County, directed by David Grimes. August: Osage County will audition in December of 2013. The Fringe Festial in August will again see us mounting two producitons. Our early play will be John Webster's classic The Duchess of Malfi, directed by Sara-Jane McGeachy. The later play will be Antony Neilson's The Wonderful World of Dissocia (a 10th Annivesary production), directed by Ross Hope. The Wonderful World of Dissocia will be read after our October meeting. The fall will see us mount David Eldridge's adaptation of Festen, directed by Claire Wood. And if all of that wasn't enough, in the lead up to the Fringe, Dan Sutton will helm our first ever improvised "twitterverse" production, centering around the events leading up to World War 1. An exciting season, I think you'll agree.
To find out more about any of our productions, please see their individual entries on the production page. Please check back often, as we will update the information on the productions, including audition information, through out the year.
Auditions for our Spring production of August: Osage County are happening early, owing to the length of the play and the rehearsal requirements. If you are interested, full information can be found on the produciton page. Auditions will be held at 18 Buccleuch Place on Sunday, 8th of December beginning at 2:30pm; Tuesday, 10th of December beginning at 7:30pm; and Thursday, 12th of December beginning at7:30pm. You only need to come to one auditoin session. We're looking for a range of ages for both men and women so, come on out and give it a go!
