Who are we?

The Counterminers are an Edinburgh-based theatre collective founded in 2019 by Lewis Forman.

The current creative directors are Lewis Forman and Hollie Avery. As a collective, all of our members are treated equally. Read more about our philosophy here.

Our inaugural piece was “Mother and the Monster” at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe. After this production, the company was largely reformed for 2020.

2020 saw the debut of “The Closing of a Small and Insignificant Bowling Alley,” which previewed at Bedfest 2020, in advance of its cancelled Fringe run.

As of 2021, we are preparing for our return to the physical stage at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on during the pandemic: a brand new dramatic comedy, “Radio 69”.
