Accomplished stage and screen actors Remy Beasley, Richard Corgan and Andy Rush will form an ensemble to perform the company's three new plays which will premiere from 5 to 28 August at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe before touring the UK. The productions will be directed by Paines Plough's Joint Artistic Director, George Perrin with Sound Designer Dom Kennedyand Lighting Designer Prema Mehta completing the creative team.

Remy Beasley is best known for playing Beyonce Evans in Sky1's recent Welsh set comedy drama Stella, written and starring Ruth Jones MBE (Gavin and Stacey), and recent stage credits include playing the lead role in the National Theatre Wales' festive theatre-gig The Insatiable, Inflatable Candylion, created by Gruff Rhys, Wils Wilson and Tim Price.
Richard Corgan, is also well known for his TV credits playing the lead role in BBC Wales' drama Baker Boy as well the BBC medical drama Doctors. Recent stage credits include TOM: A STORY OF TOM JONES THE MUSICAL (2015). Richard received a Scotsman Fringe First in 2013 for his performance in the one-man show Gardening: For the Unfulfilled and Alienated.

Andy Rush will soon appear in ID2: Shadwell Army, (the sequel to cult 90s film I.D.) and recent stage credits include the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Lyric Hammersmith acclaimed production of TIPPING THE VELVET (2015). Previous Paines Plough credits include the critically acclaimed Tom Wells play Jumpers for Goalposts (2013).

Sound Designer Dom Kennedy and Lighting Designer Prema Mehta recently worked together on Sabrina Mahfouz's hugely popular garage-influenced drama With A Little Bit Of Luck which is currently touring the UK.

The three new plays are: Growth, a comedy about growing up and manning up by rising star actor/writer, Luke Norris; Love, Lies and Taxidermy, an offbeat love story about trying to fit in by renowned Welsh writer Alan Harris; and I Got Superpowers for My Birthday, a magical quest for ages 7+ from acclaimed Scottish writer Katie Douglas.

2016 marks the third year of Roundabout, Paines Plough's award-winning portable in-the-round auditorium. The Roundabout season will preview from 19 - 24 July at Hackney Showroom in London before taking up residency once again at Summerhall during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 5 - 29 August, hosting over 225 performances over 24 days before touring the UK this Autumn.

Having brought hit productions including Lungs, Every Brilliant Thing, The Human Ear and 2014 Fringe First winning The Initiate to the Fringe in previous years, the pop-up venue within a venue at Summerhall is becoming the place to debut exciting new writing and theatre.

Roundabout will bring together three Paines Plough and partners' world premieres, the return of international hit Every Brilliant Thing and a host of visiting companies and productions, with two further premieres. EARLIER / LATER, Paines Plough's early morning and late night series of one-off shows, events, workshops and more will also return.

The packed daily programme includes relaxed performances, as well as captioned and BSL interpreted performances.
