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.

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.
