If you’re taking a show to the Edinburgh Festival, this course gives you the opportunity to develop and craft your show with other comedy and theatre professionals.


Are you taking your show to Edinburgh Fringe? There is no better place to showcase your work than the biggest arts festival in the world, but this can also be a bit daunting. If you’re taking work to the Fringe for the first time and you’re not sure where to start, our Edinburgh Lab programme can help guide you, in a warm and supportive environment. The course discusses press releases, coverage, reviews, accommodation, logistics and gives lots of creative input along the way.


You will also have masterclasses run by Lee Griffiths, with guests. Previous guests include Bec Hill, Underbelly, Lornette Harley, Kitty Edgar, Alex Hardy, Kelly Fogarty, Jenny Kassner, Beth Vyse and Edinburgh Comedy Awards Winners Richard Gadd and Sam Simmons.

The Edinburgh lab is a 10 week course, running on Wednesday evenings, 6.30pm – 8.30pm, 24 April- 17 July 2019. Please make a note that there will be no sessions 19 June, 26 June and 10 July).

The course cost is £150 and bursaries are available.

Applications close on Sunday 31 March, 10pm. We aim to get back to everyone on 6 April, 6pm. For any questions or queries, please contact Dimple on dimple@sohotheatre.com or call 02074780143
