Dundee Rep Ensemble was formed by Hamish Glen in 1999. Initially the company of 14 actors was intended as a three year experiment in finding new ways of working. The experiment proved such a success that it led to major increases in funding for the company and to invitations to perform all over the world.
James Brining became Artistic Director in 2003 and during that time the company has created over 30 productions. Since then, the Ensemble has also developed its international reputation, being the first UK company to tour to Iran in 30 years with Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. In 2005, it visited the prestigious Cerventino Festival in Mexico with a new version of Jarry’s Ubu the King and in 2006 it took David Greig’s Dr Korzcak’s Example to Tokyo and Hiroshima. The company has developed co-productions with some of the UK’s leading producers including the Barbican, the Young Vic, National Theatre of Scotland, Paines Plough and the Tron Theatre, performing in all of Scotland’s major venues. The repertoire is broad, encompassing Shakespeare, musicals, American classics, new plays and work for children and young people.
Whose work is a model of excellence, synonymous with quality across all its activities. Rooted in making work for and with a diverse local audience whilst strengthening its national reputation, complemented by a range of activities on an international scale. A national cultural asset which the people of Dundee feel ownership over and in which they can take enormous pride.
