London Associate Artists and Companies

Our London Associate Artists are testament to the sheer breadth and diversity of theatre we support here at Pleasance. We are hugely looking forward to working together, nurturing the ambition and fostering the creativity of these talented, unique and dynamic playwrights and theatre makers.

The Pleasance's founding principle – support for theatrical enterprise – remains at the heart of what we do. It allows youthful enterprise, good humour and celebration to drive new ideas and invention. This is what our London Associate Artists embody.

All of our Associate Artists benefit from being part of one of London and Edinburgh’s most exciting theatres, renowned for its mission of providing a platform for the talent of the future. London Associate Artists also benefit from:

  •  Four weeks of 100% subsidised rehearsal, plus work and meeting space.
  •  Practical Mentoring.
  •  A slot in our 2020 Pleasance Islington programme.

Aside from supporting our London Associate Artists with space, mentoring and programming opportunities, they are also welcomed into the Pleasance community. In return our London Associate Artists acts as ambassadors for Pleasance, engaging with us and our programme of work, actively participating in delivering our founding principle!
