Welcome to Theatre Paradok’s website. We are so glad you have found us.

Theatre Paradok is a performing arts society. Our goal is to facilitate theatre that is experimental and innovative without being exclusive. We thrive off the challenging and exciting. We like theatre that’s engaging, energetic and immersive. Above all, we value enthusiasm, collaboration and pure joy. We are the only society in Edinburgh that allows practitioners to make the work they want, how they want. We’d love to have you!


This August, we are going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with our largest programme ever, with 11(!) shows! View the full programme here. We are also organising various socials that you are very welcome to attend, whether you are a member or not! Everyone is welcome at Paradok!

Missed one of our shows at the Fringe? They will all be available within 24 hours after their last performance on SceneSaver to view for free! Watch all shows here. 


There are plenty of ways to get involved. Whether you want to get into acting, directing, writing, costume design, set design, stage management or tech: we want to hear from you, and we have opportunities for you. Whether it is working on a show, or taking part in one of our courses. Just send us a message, follow us on social media using the buttons at the bottom, or sign up for our newsletter

Usually, we put on multiple shows per year. At least one each semester, and one that we take to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We take proposals from our members for all of our shows, which are then voted on by our members.
