The Network 2018

In January 2017 the Scottish Drama Training Network in partnership with the Pleasance Theatre Trust created a new Graduate Production Ensemble, The Network. For Acting, Performance and Technical Theatre graduates from Scotland’s Colleges and Higher Education Institutions as they make the transition from training to industry.

This year, The Network will return with a new Director, Cast, Crew and Show. We are delighted to announce that Caitlin Skinner is this year’s professional Director. We are equally delighted to be receiving creative support from acclaimed Scottish theatre company Stellar Quines.
