Edinburgh National Partnerships Programme

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

The Pleasance 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.

For 2022 Theatre Royal Plymouth is delighted to be one of the partner organisations alongside York Theatre Royal, Bristol Old Vic, Leicester Curve, HOME Manchester, Pitlochry Festival Theatre & Sherman Theatre.

Working with The Pleasance we will identify dynamic artists at different stages in their careers, with the primary aim of the scheme to uncover and support the best companies and artists from the South West, and across the UK, to present work at the Fringe!
