Get to know us

 
Seeing a show at The Bunker is the best possible way to start engaging with us, and to learn what we’re about as a venue
 
If expense is a barrier, check out our £10 U30s tickets for all performances or get in touch with us directly. You can check out What's On at the Bunker HERE.
 

Invite us to a show

 
We would love to get to know you through something you’ve worked on.
 
Email [email protected] letting us know what stage is the work you are inviting us to is at, and tell us why you are inviting us: to transfer a show, to share a piece in progress you’d like to premiere at The Bunker, to make us familiar with your work or to ask for our feedback?
 
As we do not routinely cast productions which appear at The Bunker, we do not have the resources to attend invitations from actors at the current time.
 
Consider hiring our space for rehearsals / research and development / sharings! More information, including technical specifications of the venue, can be found HERE.
 

Tell us about your project

 
If you are a producer, a company, or a director with a project we’d love to hear from you, whether there is a script in place or not.
 
We encourage early career writers and directors to consider short form work with producers like: Pint-Sized, Monday Club, Flux Theatre, Amplified Theatre, Play Time and PLAY, all of which have produced nights at The Bunker.

ONE-OFF SHOWS
 
Throughout the year, we curate a programme of single-night shows by visiting companies and producers. 
 
Whether it’s a short play night, a poetry night, dance, an EP launch, installation a comedy show, new work or an Edinburgh Fringe preview, these are always performances that can be adapted to be presented on another production’s set and lighting rig. 
 
Normally taking place on a Sunday or a Monday depending on the ‘dark day’ of a main house show, companies are offered eight hours of supervised technical rehearsal on the day followed by an evening performance. 
 
Producers present and market their show – while the Bunker run ticketing online and on the door (for £1.20 per ticket management fee) and offers social media and technical theatre support. 
 
The hire deal (guaranteed until August 2018) is based on the Bunker taking a first call on net ticket fees of £500, after which producers keep the remainder. 

See our website for an idea of ticket prices which are agreed between producers and The Bunker.
 
Shorter runs (consecutive Sundays/Mondays, 2/3 night runs or one-week engagements) are a rare possibility.
