“Grid Iron is not just a Scottish national treasure but one of the companies that has shaped British theatre over the last 20 years.”

“We are fortunate in Scotland to have one of the best exponents of the site-specific genre in the world in Grid Iron.”

“Grid Iron are surely now one of the most sophisticated site-specific theatre makers in Europe.”

“Grid Iron, one of Scotland’s boldest and most influential groups of the last two decades.”

“Site-specific is the most vigorously disciplined, &, when good, exhilarating form of theatre. When is it good? When Grid Iron does it.”

“Grid Iron, a company that has always been in the vanguard of site-responsive theatre.”

“One of Scotland’s most relevant, resourceful and committed companies”

“Long before “immersive” became a buzz word, this company were enticing audiences into parallel universes to often-stunning effect.”
