STG (Strathclyde Theatre Group) is a varied company of professional and non-professional performers and practitioners. Members can enter the group with no prior experience, though some leave to train and become theatre professionals. Many stay in touch afterwards, because they found their STG experience invaluable. However, many do not enter professional theatre, and join to make new friends, develop self-confidence, and to access their creativity and imagination.

As well as acting and directing, members can gain experience and training inlighting and sound design, set design, directing, writing, and arts administration - with the opportunity to perform work to a city audience that expects the highest professional standards. Founded by Hugo Gifford in 1971, the company grew out of the University of Strathclyde’s Department of English Studies, and has helped launch the careers of many actors - from Siobhan Redmond to Henry Ian Cusick - and of directors, from David Mark Thomson to Leslie Finlay - and of writers, from George Mackay Brown to Stephen Greenhorn.
We were the first company in Scotland to present major international playwrights such as Sam Shepard and Caryl Churchill, and the enthusiasm generated by these productions created an audience for these writers throughout Scottish theatre. The quality of our work has been recognised through winning Fringe Firsts at the Edinburgh Festival and many productions are nationally reviewed.
