Pleasance has announced their Futures season 2022! Pleasance Futures is the artist development strand of the Pleasance Theatre Trust, opening doors for emerging companies by generating and funding creative opportunities.

3rd August – 29th August 2022

The 2022 Edinburgh Pleasance Futures season is bold and ambitious with new work from some of the most dynamic up-and-coming companies throughout the UK. The 23 productions that form the Futures programme encompass the Charlie Hartill Theatre and Comedy Reserve; the Generate Fund for UK-based Black, Asian and Global Majority Artists; Young Pleasance; the National Partnerships - funded by John Ellerman Foundation and William Syson Foundation; the Les Enfants Terribles and Greenwich Theatre Awards; Pick of VAULT Award; and Pleasance Associates.

Anthony Alderson, director of the Pleasance Theatre Trust, comments ‘At the Pleasance, it’s vital that we provide opportunities for artists who may not be able to present work without support. The various programmes provide in-kind and financial support as well as offering important partnerships, mentoring, development and dramaturgy. Through these schemes we are able to ensure we are working with outstanding new theatrical voices as well as improving the diversity of artists staging work. These 23 shows address important issues, merge style and present bold new ideas. I can’t wait to see them all’
