Our CREATE strand is where we create exciting new pieces of theatre, often with a socio-political focus. We're really passionate about creating new work in new ways, trying different forms, styles and venues to make theatre as accessible as possible. On this page you can learn about our past CREATE projects, as well as any opportunities for upcoming productions.
If you're interested in getting involved, you should check out the workshops and productions that are part of FRAMEWORK FESTIVAL, Scotland's first emerging theatre makers festival, 3rd-7th May 2021.

(5th - 7th August 2018) - PBH Free Fringe
12 Pending was our first show, running for three days as part of the PBH Free Fringe. The comedy sketch style piece contained musical numbers and some truly awful jokes. Over the course of our short run at Revolution on Chambers Street we played to over 150 people.
"Do you know what you're doing after graduation? We certainly don't! That's why we're doing the fringe! Come see 45 minutes of confusion, laughter and friendship as we attempt to work it out! "
