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.
