A new drive to offer working-class Scots financial and mentoring help to put on shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is being launched for the event’s 75th anniversary year.
Year-round support will be offered to five producers under a new pilot programme aimed at making it easier for working class Scots to premiere work at the 2023 Fringe.
The scheme, which is being targeted at first-time Fringe producers, will be launched during the final week of this year’s festival.
