The Pleasance (Edinburgh) is working with partner theatres across the UK to identify and support exceptional artists and companies local to them who want to take work to the Fringe. Each partner is a leading national producing house, with a commitment to supporting and developing new artists.

We are delighted to be working with the Pleasance Theatre as part of their Edinburgh National Partnerships programme to support one artist or company who want to take work to Edinburgh Fringe in 2022.

After an open call and interviews, we’re delighted to be working with Eve Nichol on her production Svengali.Written and directed by Eve Nicol, ‘Svengali‘ is the story of a promising young woman who finds unexpected success in the thrall of a mesmeric mentor as her own light diminishes.

In 2021,Pitlochry Festival Theatre was delighted to be one of the partner organisations for the first time, alongside York Theatre Royal, Bristol Old Vic, HOME Manchester, Theatre Royal Plymouth, Eden Court Inverness and Leicester Curve.

Following an open call out, we worked with Lila Clements and in her production of Look No Hands, an exciting new piece about childhood memory, grief, trauma and positive growth. This is Lila’s first full length solo show exploring how trauma changes us.We hope to share it with you in our theatre soon.
