Each month, EYT Artistic Director and renowned Scottish actor, Shauna Macdonald, hosts a conversation on zoom with a different distinguished guest from the arts industry, who will tell you all they know about their craft. You are part of the conversation and are invited to ask questions throughout.

The aim of these sessions is to inspire as many people as possible and to give real insight into the theatre, film and television industry. Edinburgh Youth Theatre has reached out to these professionals to take part in our fundraising event series, and boy have they stepped up!

Tickets price is a suggested donation of £15, raising much needed funds for the youth theatre. 

The all star guests include:

Actor James McAvoy (X-Men, Split, Glass, Atonement)

Writer Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting, Wedding Belles, Filth, Headstate)

Writers and creators of ‘Burnistoun’ Robert Florence and Iain Connell 

Director Philip John (Downton Abbey, Outlander, Moondogs, Wedding Belles)
