Crew Wanted


We are currently looking for one or two assistant directors and one or two stage managers to work on our 2018 Edinburgh Fringe productions Casanova Dreaming and a new version of Volpone. These positions involve guaranteed but minimal payment, with the possibility of additional profit share if the plays are successful.


With a track record of critically successful productions, we welcome applications from any individual, but the very low pay on offer suggests that these posts are best suited to those setting out on a career in the theatre who have another source of income.


We are a small Edinburgh-based group of actors and crew who are passionately interested and involved in theatre. For details of previous productions see here. For details of Casanova Dreaming and Volpone, see here. We would like to interview candidates in early December.
