If you’re taking a show up to Edinburgh this summer, listen up. Application for the Drayton Arms Theatre’s annual EDDIES awards have just opened, and I think it’s definitely worth a shot.
The Drayton Arms is well-known for helping new and emerging artists to stage their work cost-effectively, and have just announced they’re going to be up in Edinburgh this summer on the look-out for the most exciting companies to give the award to.
In a nutshell, the prize is:
- an immediate London transfer, with all normal hire fees waived. This will either be a 3-week (1st prize), 1-week (2nd prize) or 2-night (3rd prize) run.
- the company will receive 100% of ticket sales, so they won’t even take a cut
- they also cover all flyer, poster printing and distribution costs.
If you’re keen, you need to apply here by August 15th: http://www.thedraytonarmstheatre.co.uk/menu/eddies/eddies-2017. They will then view and assess shows, up in Edinburgh, from 16th – 22nd August to decide on a winner.
