Young Pleasance is dedicated to offering dynamic, excellent and professional theatre opportunities for young people through workshops and large-scale productions delivered by their ambitious creative team.
Based at Pleasance Islington, the company rehearses and performs regularly in London and its other home in Edinburgh. Currently Young Pleasance are operating our London Workshops and our Edinburgh Residential.
Young Pleasance London is the new ensemble for theatremakers aged 16 – 25 at the Pleasance Theatre, Islington, launched in September 2018. After 24 years of creating exciting, devised, physical theatre for the Edinburgh Fringe, the reputation of the Pleasance’s youth theatre has been firmly established as a “launchpad for new talent and ideas” (Theatre Weekly).
Their mission is to create a diverse, inclusive, innovative and socially responsible youth theatre focusing on upskilling, devising and actor techniques. This dynamic company will exist to develop the voices of young artists.
