Overview

SEEN: On the Fringe

Sunday 1st September 2019

It’s Edinburgh Fringe season and here at SEEN, we’re reclaiming its roots. In 1947, eight theatre groups turned up uninvited to perform at the debut Edinburgh International Festival. Their aim to hijack the Festival’s large crowds and draw them away from normality and into the world of alternative theatre gave birth to what we now call the Fringe. 

This SEEN, we want to see that same spirit. Defy convention. Give us your misfits, your outliers and your rebels. Riot against words, form or the audience. We don’t care. Surprise us.

Please note that we are especially interested in receiving submissions from people of colour, LGBTQ+ individuals, disabled individuals, working class individuals and those who identify as trans / non-binary.

As always, SEEN will be three 10-minute script-in-hand performances which all respond to a particular theme, followed by a post-scratch Q&A/discussion between writers and the audience.

We will be accepting directing and acting enquiries until Monday 26th August. Please send to seen@otherroomtheatre.com with ‘On the Fringe’ in the title.
