This coming week our hometown of Plymouth will host more than 40 theatre and performance artists as the Plymouth Fringe Festival sweeps into town.
While we may not have a show in the festival ourselves, there are a number of pieces that we have commissioned or supported which you can catch including two of our most recent Outpost commissions and a couple of BETA alumni.
And, if that’s not enough to tempt you, there’s some great ticket deals on offer including the ability to pay just £5 for each if you book for four or more shows!
Great Train Robbery
