The Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group, EGTG, has announced that 2019 will be one of its most ambitious years yet; with four full-length productions, two one-acts and a programme of improvised theatre throughout the year.
As is traditional for the group, the season includes a mix of classical literature and exciting contemporary pieces.
