Letters to The Lyceum, Edinburgh

With The Lyceum auditorium sitting empty for the first time in decades during the current pandemic, Artistic Director David Greig is inviting artists and audiences alike to contribute their stories about life in these unprecedented times in a Letter to The Lyceum. All letters received will be added to the website below to form a collective portrait of a world turned upside down.

A selection of letters will be read by actors and shared in a weekly podcast and will go on to form part of a special one-off show to re-open the theatre.

Letters can be of any length and can be accompanied by a picture of yourself or photograph you have taken to illustrate your letter.

Please share your insights, reflections and observations about life in lockdown with us by sending your letter to:


Or by post to:

Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh
30b Grindlay Street,
