Catherine O’Shea is a playwright and producer who has brought numerous successful productions to the Edinburgh Fringe. In 2005 she jointed the Fringe Board and she is travelling around the world in 2007 delivering presentations on how to bring shows to the festival. She is accompanied Sasha Alsop a successful Fringe producer who will talk about the realities of performing at this event.

This presentation is free, but numbers are limited. To register your interest contact Richard.Kyle[at]
