All companies are required to use our branding and to promote our services (pre-theatre dining for example) in all advertising, marketing and press releases.

All tickets for Edinburgh preview performances will be set at a flat rate of £10.

Theatre Plan




"Great fringe theatre - Upstairs from the pub, very intimate stage allowing the audience to become part of the performance."
