Welcome to the Theatre Paradok’s EUSA profile.

We're so glad you've found us. 

Theatre Paradok is a performing arts society. Our aim is to facilitate the creation of 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 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. There are plenty of other ways to get involved. Whether you want to get into costume design or tech: we want to hear from you. Just send us a message! We also run a number of workshops throughout the year in which we explore many different facets of theatre from devising physical theatre to vocal control and everything in between. 

To get all our updates, find us on facebook or and if you have any questions, email us at

Pop along to one of our committee meetings to hear more, pitch ideas and learn about workshops. We are the only society in Edinburgh that allows practicioners to make the work they want, how they want. We'd love to have you!
