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.

Working alongside our Comedy Associate, with guest artists popping in over the term and dramaturgy with our Artistic Team, this programme is designed to help artists develop their work in the run up to Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018. Whether you’re working on a solo show, a piece of writing, a comedy sketch or stand up routine, we’re here to help. Want to know more about press releases, producing, marketing, previews and re-drafting your work, look no further.

Previous guests include:
Bec Hill, Underbelly, Lornette Harley (former Soho Theatre Press Team), Kitty Edgar (Soho Theatre Comedy Assistant)  and Edinburgh Comedy Awards Winners Richard Gadd and Sam Simmons.

Edinburgh Plus runs as a 10 week course 12 May- 7 July, leading to a public sharing at the end of the term Sat 21 July. Course cost is £125 with a few bursaries available. We ask that participants commit to attending all 10 weeks.


Applications are currently closed and will re-open late July.
