Welcome to the Edinburgh Showcase

The British Council’s biennial Edinburgh Showcase is the single biggest opportunity for UK theatre companies to introduce their work to international promoters. The programme comprises new work that represents the very best of contemporary theatre and dance, reflecting the breadth and diversity of British performing arts.

Since the British Council’s first Showcase in 1997 the event has given 350 theatre and dance companies the opportunity to tour overseas, building new relationships and opening up new markets for the UK’s performing arts. 

For an overview of the Edinburgh Showcase 2015 line-up of companies and their work on show, watch the film presented by theatre critic and journalist Matt Trueman.
