The Edinburgh University Shakespeare Company is proud to be entering its ninth successful year, having gone from strength to strength in establishing what is now one of the most respected performance groups at the university.
The Company, made up of an increasing number of talented actors, directors, designers and producers, is committed to the production of one large scale Shakespeare play each year as well as holding frequent workshops covering topics from literary analysis to stagecraft, theatrical history, adaptation, costuming, and set design.
No matter what aspect of theatre you’re into, everyone is welcome to take part in workshops and productions in the safe creative space of the EUSC where everyone is learning new ways to engage with Shakespeare’s work! As well as acting you can also try your hand at producing and directing or get involved backstage with the tech or stage managing – there are always helping hands to show you the way!
