HOME Award, Edinburgh Fringe Festival

We are delighted to be working with the Pleasance Theatre as part of their Partnership Pathways Programme to support one Greater Manchester artist or company who want to take work to Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.

The Pleasance is working with five partner theatres across the UK to identify and support exceptional artists and companies local to them who want to take work to the Fringe. Each partner is a leading national producing house, with a commitment to supporting and developing new artists.

For 2019 HOME is one of the partner organisations alongside York Theatre Royal, Bristol Old Vic, Royal Derngate and Northampton and Curve.

Working with the Pleasance we will identify dynamic artists at different stages in their careers. Each partner theatre’s submission process will be different, but the primary aim of the scheme remains the same; to uncover and support the best companies and artists from across the UK to present work at the Fringe!
