The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures at the University of Edinburgh has a lot to offer students of theatre.
The School is remarkable in being able to offer the expertise of research-active staff in British, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Scandinavian theatre studies, and in drama and performance theory.
All our theatre studies staff are also of course expert in the language and culture of the country whose drama they teach. A number of the theatre studies staff are also practitioners of theatre.
Edinburgh is world famous for theatre and performance - and of course home to the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Scotland's major new writing theatre, the Traverse Theatre, offers courses for young writers, with the opportunity of having your play performed.
The University-owned Pleasance Societies' Centre is one of the Festival's prime comedy venues.
Edinburgh University Theatre Company (EUTC) operates the only student-run theatre in Britain, the Bedlam Theatre, where you can try your hand at acting, directing, producing, stage-managing, or just have a go at something new.
