A Play in Technicolour

Nathaniel Brimmer -Beller is about to enter his 4th year as a student of International Relations at the University of Edinburgh. He founded Black Bat Productions in 2016 when he put on Mack The Knife at Bedlam Theatre and since then some fabulous people with unique talents and insights have come aboard to create a well-oiled team who are producing great works.

The Bare Necessities

Dominic Lewis is a busy man. He works at the University of Edinburgh as Assistant Manager of Reception Services and Hotels and is also a warden managing a team who provide welfare support and event programming to students. So I was amazed when he told me last September that he was going to launch Bare Productions - an Edinburgh-based theatre company committed to providing opportunities for amateur performers, through professional standard shows.
