CONVERSION SEASON

Our Autumn Seasion 2014 successfully launched last Friday with a performance of The Improverts.

Their regular Friday night performance at Bedlam Theatre was perfomed to a sell-out crowd, in-the-round, adding furthering to the on-stage jollity.

Conversion Season 2014, which is taking up our Autumn programme, is the culmination of performances which break out of the ‘black box’ of Bedlam Theatre and investigate different forms of staging.

EVENTS THIS WEEK

Wednesday 24th September, 12.30pm - The James Plays: Live Debates

The EUTC are delighted to be hosting the National Theatre Scotland for the second of two workshops with the company. The workshop will focus on the idea of debate, which is a strong thread throughout all three plays which premiered at the Edinburgh International Festival this August.

Wednesday 24th - Saturday 27th, 7.30pm - Freshers’ Play: 50 Shades of Bedlam

Our annual Freshers’ Play welcomes new members to the EUTC. They are given a week to come up with a short sketch based around a common theme, this year our budding thespians were given nothing but the titles of erotic novels as the starting point for their creations. Now we can wonder and marvel at what their minds have come up with.
