Aulos Productions is an Edinburgh-based production company, dedicated to bringing new writing and ancient classics to the stage and screen. Through our work, we tend to explore the forgotten aspects of histories, both personal and political, cutting through myths to find the real people at their heart. Ancient tales are transported to modern settings and vice versa. Be it classical, the 20th century or the modern day, we aim to have all our work resonate with contemporary audiences.
Aulos Productions was formed in 2014 by James Beagon, an Edinburgh University graduate and prolific figure in the university theatre scene. His writing and directing credits during that time included adaptations of Rosemary Sutcliff’s Sword at Sunset’ and J.K Rowling’s Beedle the Bard.
Since 2014, Aulos Productions has produced a wide array of award-winning, award-nominated and critically-acclaimed work, touching on subjects as varied as the role of women in history, football hooliganism through the lens of Shakespeare, the impact of Brexit and the importance of choice in the lives of children.
We perform shows both during and outside of festival time, holding regular open auditions in Edinburgh. Read more about our past and present productions on this site.
