Edinburgh Award Shortlist

1 August 2017

NSDF is hitting Edinburgh, to check out the créme de la créme of emerging companies for our 2017 Edinburgh Award.

We've shortlisted 20 performances, all new works or groundbreaking adaptations, to watch during the Fringe. The competition will be fierce, but we'll ultimately award one of these companies with a £500 cash prize and a run at the Pleasance Theatre in London.

The award will be announced late afternoon on Tuesday 22nd August.

Thank you to all who entered, and congratulations to those selected. See you in Edinburgh!
