Welcome to the Theatre Paradok’s EUSA profile.

We're so glad you've found us.

Theatre Paradok is a performing arts society. Our goal is to facilitate theatre that is experimental and innovative without being exclusive. We thrive off the challenging and exciting. We like theatre that’s engaging, energetic and immersive. Above all, we value enthusiasm, collaboration and pure joy. We are the only society in Edinburgh that allows practitioners to make the work they want, how they want. We'd love to have you!

There are plenty of other ways to get involved. Whether you want to get into acting, directing, costume design, set design, stage management or tech: we want to hear from you. Just send us a message or follow us on Facebook!

Usually, we put on multiple shows per year. At least one each semester and one that we take to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We take proposals from our members for all of our shows.

This year, we will be taking our usual events and workshops online. We are still planning on what exactly we want to do, but we love to hear from you nonetheless. Tell us what kind of theatre you are interested in making!
