Roundabout at Summerhall 2024

This year, Paines Plough celebrates its 50th birthday, and this big joyous yellow dome celebrates its 10th.

So here it is: our celebration.

We have another packed programme showcasing some of the very best new writing that the country has to offer. Just like the plays and the writers we have championed across our 50 years, these are stories that blaze with laughter, hope, love and fury.

They come from voices and perspectives you might never have heard before, speak about the world in new ways, and hold a mirror to our relationships with ourselves and one another.

We hope you love them just as much as we do.
