Spotlights offer a balanced blend of exciting and established pieces and cutting edge, boundary re-defining new writing. In the 2015 the venue offered 41 pieces of new writing or development, with or without words! Spotlites encourages new writing and is proud of its growing reputation as a venue where new writing can do well artistically and play to full houses! We are also proud of the various awards which our companies have received for new writing including The Stage Award for Acting Excellence, FringeReview Award for Outstanding Theatre, ThreeWeeks Editor's Award and the Derek People's Choice Award.
We are most interested in the relationship between audience and performer and much of our programme explores and expands this, including our unique programme of interactive plays for children.
Our central easy to find venue, on the corner of Hanover and George Street and part of what The Scotsman calls the 'Cultural Corridor', is one of the leading venues at EdFringe with five beautiful theatres established at the heart of the Festival.
