At The Pleasance we believe it is important to give people the space and freedom to take risks both on and off stage. From this spirit of innovation, springs confidence and great careers are given a platform upon which to flourish. This spirit has embodied the organisation since opening in 1985, during which we have become world-renowned for spotting great talent both on and off stage, building an environment that nurtures, encourages and develops the brightest new ideas, raw talent and skill. Our aim is to create a collegiate and mutually supportive aspirational environment where the artistic risk is under-pinned, supported and enabled by a knowledgeable and imaginative staff team.
For 35 years the Pleasance has been discovering and nurturing the very best in Fringe Theatre. 2019 marks our biggest and boldest programme of work and artist development to date. The Pleasance is a non for profit charity and at the heart of our mission is Pleasance Futures. This development platform generates and funds a compelling range of opportunities to help launch careers, both on and off the stage. In both our artist and volunteer programmes, those more established in their field stand proudly side-by-side with those just starting out; creating an environment that nurtures, encourages and develops the brightest new ideas, raw talent and skills.
Providing these opportunities is why we exist and we need your help in ensuring we're able to keep offering this creative development and support.
