We are inviting people to come together once again, this time to make political theatre, whatever that means to you… Roxy Takeover Scrapyard Manifesto participants will take over the entire Roxy Theatre in Edinburgh for three days, where we will have the freedom to play and experiment to create short pieces of theatre to challenge, provoke and stimulate debate. A public performance of the work created will take place in the Roxy on the 11th of October at 8pm.

Hello, I’m looking for 2 actors to be available for a reading of a new script this Thursday at 2pm. Ideally you would be Edinburgh based and be between the ages of 25 to 30. This is the first reading of a new script which explores the repetitive life of two young men living in poverty within a rural Scottish town. Please do not apply if at all disturbed by notions of violence and offensive language. Unfortunately we are unable to offer any fees for this reading (I know this can be a bug-bear on the forum), however we would offer travel expenses, lunch (if necessary) and as much coffee as you can drink. And of course a beer afterwards to chat. Anyone who is offered the reading would of course be considered when running this production. please respond off-forum to Warmest regards Sean Wildey

Fancy performing in a Fringe show this summer? Theatre Alba are looking a male actor - playing age 20-35 - to play Darnley in Mary Stuart - Queen of Scots due to a dropout. Wonderful, collaborative company with a great camaraderie and the show is in Duddingston Kirk Gardens; by far the most beautiful venue in Edinburgh. It will also transfer to the Brunton immediately after. Profit share, but there WILL be some profit and potential for a fully funded tour next year. Also looking, if possible, for a guitar playing Rizzio. Please share with anyone who may be interested. Contact: Maria Macdonald: or Charlie: 01875 871279
