The Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group, or EGTG, has been putting on theatre productions in Edinburgh for over 60 years and has established its place as one of the city’s most respected amateur companies. With a reputation for tackling challenging contemporary work, in recent years, EGTG has mounted productions of plays by Mark Ravenhill, Abi Morgan, Patrick Marber, Martin McDonagh and Caryl Churchill, as well as innovative productions of Shakespeare and other classics.
EGTG was founded in 1954 by some Edinburgh University alumni who were former members of the University Dramatic Society. Since then, the original members have been joined or replaced by fresh generations of talent. The University connection has been retained though, and we still meet in the Grads Association rooms at 18 Buccleuch Place.
Latest news and upcoming shows.
EGTG has announced the return of The Improbables, its highly successful Improv troupe, with a 10-week introductory course into short-form improv. Workshops will begin on Monday 24 February 2020.
Hay Fever by Noel Coward
It is with regret that we have had to postpone our production of Noel Coward’s Hay Fever due to the ongoing health crisis. We are hopeful that we will stage the play in spring 2021. For those of you who have bought tickets already, refunds should be issued by the venue Assembly Roxy within 3-5 days.
Thank you to the cast for their understanding, and to our audience for your continued support.
