“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a baked good, must be in want of a play.”
You are cordially invited to a halfBaked Valentine’s production of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. Bachelors not included.
In true halfBaked style, not all performers will be off book, and there will be (fully) baked goods provided with every ticket, so BYOB, and join us for a reasonably good time!
“People aren’t perfect. Even the people you love.”
Frantic Assembly’s Things I Know to Be True is at its heart a show about the duality of love, at the same time destructive and beautiful. The play follows the Price family over a year of change; after Rosie returns from a year abroad she is eager to return to her memory of a perfect home. She aches for the sense of familiarity and security they bring, however upon returning it becomes obvious that something is off. As a series of secrets are revealed and Rosie is forced to confront her immaturity and need to grow up, despite her desire not to.
At times heart-warming and at times devastating; Things I Know to Be True explores every aspect of love and the grief that must come with it.
On February 7th, we invite you to enter the Darkroom!
We will be transforming bedlam theatre into a multi-room speakeasy filled with live music and entertainment. Under red light, you will dance the night away or sit in the shadows…
Edinburgh’s longest running improv troupe are back for another year! After selling out over the 2023 Fringe, the Imps cannot wait to get back to term-time fun onstage. Join them every Friday for an hour of short form improv, based entirely on audience suggestions. New players and new games mean that shows are always different, always funny!
We can’t wait for you to come and have a laugh with The Improverts and celebrate another year of critically acclaimed improv!
Every Sunday 12:00 to 14:00 we do Maintenance where we tidy up the building and make some small building improvements. Everyone is welcome to help, we provide you with snacks and a good playlist.
If you have worked on a show you need to come to maintenance to tidy up after your show. If you do not, you will go into Maintenance Debt. You can clear this by coming to another Maintenance Session or talking to Lewis Eggeling (Theatre Manager). Similarly you will need to staff a show (or two if you did a mainterm) in exchange for other members staffing your show. You can sign up at
If you have any questions please contact Luca Stier at [email protected]
After Maintenance we have Duty Management (DM) training from 14:00 to 14:30. During this time, we will teach you how to run the building during a show, open and lock up the building, and what to do in case of a fire. Theatre always needs to be at least one DM trained person present when the building is in use, so being DM trained is very helpful for Production Team members!
