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 put on productions that are experimental without being exclusive. 

Each semester we vote on a play, dedicate our time to it, and put it on. We have performed in venues all over the city; traditional theatres, gothic churches, the basement of McEwan Hall…  We’ve grown over the last ten years, with an ever-growing team of actors, costume-makers, make-up artists, set-designers, artists, musicians, technicians and everything in between. We hope you’d like to be a part of that growing team. We encourage new writing and experimental approaches to theatre. We will be putting on a few workshops each semester this year to develop acting/directing skills and to discuss ‘alternative theatre’ and its meanings. Paradok is an open space where members can try new techniques and learn from each other.

This semester's production will be DARK TALES

Dark Tales is a double bill of two ghost stories. The signalman by Charles Dickens, adapted for the stage by Matthew Harper and The Old Nurse's Story by Elizabeth Gaskell. We will be auditioning for this show, in the week following on from freshers week. Keep up to date on our facebook for all information related to this. As well as the details for all our exciting freshers week events!
