September news from house

Welcome to September edition of the house newsletter. We hope that you all had a good summer.

house in Edinburgh

What a busy time we had during the last week of this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe Festival.

house facilitated a group of 30+ venue programmers from the south east to attend the Fringe to network, see shows and spend time with their fellow programmers.

We were all impressed with the wide range of work that was on offer at the Fringe. Following the festival, the programmers have given us their feedback on the shows that would interest their audiences, and the house team are now discussing our 2014 touring programme based on these thoughts. Any updates will be posted in our ‘now touring’ section of the website once these are confirmed. Following the festival, Sarah wrote us a blog on the week for her and more on what we got up to.

Upcoming tours

  •  The house supported tour for The Duchess Of Malfi from Eyestrings Theatre Company opens at Southwark Playhouse this week, and then enjoys a four week tour to house venues.
  •  Transport are deep in rehearsals for the house commissioned tour of As You Like It before they embark on another extensive UK and international tour.
  •  New to house for touring in early 2014 are Frozen Light with Tunnels; a piece specifically made for audiences with PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities) and their carers. This tour forms part of house’s on-going strategy to make more theatre accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
