From solo performances to ensemble physical theatre, from immersive installations to surreal two-handers, the Pleasance continues to programme bold work making it the place for incredible stories.

Director of the Pleasance, Anthony Alderson comments ...

"This exciting transfer festival brings the buzz of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to our London home.

I'm delighted that we can extend our work with so many of these talented companies.

The Festival will take over the whole of our London space bringing the diversity of our Fringe programme to new and wider audiences."
