Fire Exit

Charity description

Fire Exit logo
Fire Exit's charitable purpose is to make artistic experimentation more accessible to wider audiences.

“Able to touch an audience on an emotional level, while at the same time provoking a profound cultural commentary on much deeper issues."
The List

Fire Exit presents international, multi-award-winning theatre that aims to innovate, illuminate and invigorate. The company was set up in 2002 by artistic director David Leddy, who writes and directs Fire Exit's shows. He has been described as a 'leading theatrical innovator' by The Times as well as a ‘maverick’ (Guardian), an ‘institution’ (Independent), a ‘genius’ (Scotsman), a ‘master’ (Estado de Sao Paulo, Brazil) and a 'theatrical iconoclast' (The List). The shows combine the emotional drive of dramatic new writing with the intellectual stimulation of performance art and the dynamism of new technology.

The company became a charity in 2015. Committed to contributing to capacity building within the Scottish theatre sector, Fire Exit has a strong creative leaning programme which includes mentoring and advisory sessions.
