The Lyceum is a leading producing theatre in Scotland and one of the United Kingdom’s most prolific theatre companies, dedicated to making innovative, high-quality theatre that draws upon the brilliant creative talent in Scotland and beyond and develops award-winning work with partners across the globe.
We believe that making and experiencing theatre together is life enhancing and we are committed to being a theatre rooted in our community, a truly civic theatre; entertaining, challenging and inspiring the people of Edinburgh and beyond. With Artistic Director David Greig, The Lyceum has continued to seek out new artistic partnerships, casting 100 local citizens in our main stage production of The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other and 50 more in The Suppliant Women, the acclaimed production that opened David’s first season. Through our work with Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne; DOT Theatre, Istanbul; Bristol Old Vic; London Old Vic; Lyric Hammersmith; National Theatre of Scotland; Citizens Theatre; Scottish Dance Theatre; Stellar Quines; Lung Ha; Fuel, and many more, we strive to bring Edinburgh to the world, and the world to Edinburgh.
