A vibrant young company that brings together artists and volunteers based in Edinburgh to produce theatre that is intense, raw and electric. Working outside of the world of fancy sets and effects, our aim is to produce shows that focus on the story and the characters in productions that are stripped back, engaging and brilliantly entertaining.
Founded in 2014, Gin and Tonic Productions’ adaptations of Shakespeare’s classic plays Hamlet and A Midsummer’s Night Dream, directed by Artistic Director Elske Waite, toured the UK visiting Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 and 2015, earning outstanding reviews with multiple sell out performances. This year, Gin and Tonic will embark on their first European tour, with Bob to Festival d’Avignon, London, and Edinburgh Fringe 2016.
‘With a confidence not often seen in such a young company… you can’t help but be swept along by the pace of the production.’
“An energetic and effervescent force runs through Gin and Tonic Productions take on one of Shakespeare’s most imaginative and delightful comedies.”
