Theatre Paradok are the University of Edinburgh's alternative theatre company. Each semester we work on one big production, with the aim of producing theatre that is inclusive, thought-provoking, challenging and exciting.

This is another story slam event to raise funds for our upcoming production, 'Banknote', by Yasmine Akamune-Miles.
Story slams are like poetry slams, except you have to tell a 5 minute TRUE LIFE story, in front of the audience and judges. Usually there is a theme, but seeing as this is our first try at this, we're not going to put limits on it.
Tellers will have up to a minute to end the story if they are still mid-flow when the time is up.
There will be 2 sets of 4 or 5 stories - with a break in the middle for chatting and drinking and general entertainment.
There shall be a winner but this event is mainly about the stories and the chance to share a little slice of your life with everyone!
Turn up and put your name down - everyone has an equal chance.
See you at Teviot Underground on the 2nd March (this coming Sunday) at 7.30pm! Bring your tales~

CABARET NOIR NEEDS YOU!
Towards the end of October/beginning of November (venue and time tbc) we will be putting on another CABARET NOIR with the Edinburgh Revue.
From comedy to poetry to music to being able to balance peanuts on your elbows, anything that's worth around 4 minutes of the audience's time is welcome. If you already have an idea or are stuck for one but would still like to perform email us at email@example.com.
Don't forget that in the past the Edinburgh Revue have written comedy sketches for performers with no material, so we can always find something for you!
And for everyone else, more updates on the time and date of Cabaret Noir soon!
