Grid Iron Theatre Company Tour Dates
Grid Iron are an Edinburgh-based theatre company who, following their incorporation in 1995 and their first show Clearance at the Traverse, Edinburgh, swiftly gained a reputation for creating high-quality, high profile shows. The Company went on to specialise in presenting shows in unusual locations such as an airport, car park, foyers, hotel, bar, school or a climbing centre. They are a new writing company who work in challenging sites that lend themselves especially well to Grid Iron’s taut production style. Occasionally they create work for the stage or use theatre buildings in a site-responsive, promenade manner. In 1997 Grid Iron produced their first full-scale site-specific production, The Bloody Chamber, their adaptation of Angela Carter’s Bluebeard fairytale, which they presented in famously haunted underground vaults beneath Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile. Since then they have been awarded: 7 Fringe First Awards, 6 Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland, 3 Stage Awards for Acting Excellence, 3 Herald Angels, 2 Herald Devils, Herald Archangel and many others.
