Shows on a Shoestring is a small scale theatre company, founded by Effie Scott in 2012 to produce new work. We are based in Glasgow’s East End.

Although still a new company, Shows on a Shoestring has big ambitions. We aim to provide workshops for young people both in schools and local communities as well as produce high quality performances of new writing from Glasgow and further afield.

Founder Effie Scott is a graduate of East 15 with a BA in Acting & Community theatre and aims to use the skills gathered there to continue the work of this company.
