Arbery seeks EdFringe partners

Two 45 min shows sought

Arbery Productions is offering two free, one-week slots at this year’s EdFringe to Edinburgh-based companies with “exciting and contemporary” shows to promote.

The company has booked three one-week, one-hour slots at theSpace on Niddry Street, venue 9, and will be staging its own production, Sunset, in week one. It is now looking for co-productions to use up the two other weeks.

The company says: “We have a couple of ideas for weeks two and three. But these ideas may not come to fruition so we’re inviting other drama types to submit their proposals. The more exciting and contemporary the idea, the more we are likely to be interested.”

Anyone with proposals should contact Arbery before the end of Friday 1 March 2019 with show outline and details of cast, crew and their experience.

On offer is:

  • free registration at the Fringe
  • free performance time at theSpace (Mon – Sat 12-17 or 19-24 Aug, slot 17.15 – 18.15)
  • free rehearsal space and time (in July; limited availability)
  • free printed PR material
  • public liability insurance

The company is looking for:

  •  a performance lasting no longer than 45 minutes
  • a show suitable for a small cast on a small thrust stage
  • a show with director, cast, crew and script (although they can help find some of this)
  •  intensive PR for your show.

The show should be a play or musical – not stand-up comedy or dance. It can be original or previously performed but the performing company has to have ownership or have leased performing rights.

Arbery Productions is looking to collaborate with a company that is based in Edinburgh, or at most within 30 miles of Edinburgh.

Founded in 2013 and based in Edinburgh since 2014, Arbery Productions describes itself as “an occasional group of theatre creatives with a track record of successful productions”.

Recent productions include Martin Forman’s adaptation of Ben Jonson’s Volpone (with EGTG at EdFringe 2017 and as a two-act for EdFringe 2018) and new one-act drama Casanova Dreaming (EdFringe 2018).

Beside the production of Sunset, which will star Maggie Macleod as a grandmother remembering her first date, the man she married and their life together, Arbery will be taking part in the coming SCDA One Act Festival with a production of Mike Bartlett’s Bull.
