Performing at Pleasance London

Performing at Pleasance London

We strive to present a rich and varied programme of quality work at the Pleasance Islington, with a particular emphasis on the new and untried.

In the Main House we present a varied programme of quality new writing and new work, children's theatre and the best in touring productions - not to mention regular performances by some of the biggest names in comedy! The StageSpace was set up with the aim of providing an affordable platform for the talent of the future. The vast majority of the work is original and some truly exciting work has emerged.

If you would like to perform with us at the Pleasance Islington we will need you to provide us with the following information:

- The show you're proposing - treatment or synopsis/script or video/DVD if possible

- A bit about your company - who you are/why this show and review pack if possible

- The dates you're looking for

- The length of run you're looking for

- Which theatre you're interested in

- The (estimated) running time of the show

- The (estimated) size of the cast

- Technical requirements (as known/anticipated)

Once we received this material from you we will see what the possibilities are and get back in touch with you.

Should you wish to find out more or to tell us about your show please contact Nic Connaughton (Head of Theatre) - or Ryan Taylor (Head of Comedy) - or call on 020 7619 6868.

Please note that the Pleasance Theatre Trust is an unfunded charity and we are rarely able to operate as a producing house - as such we are not currently considering proposals based on the Pleasance acting as sole or co-producer.
