Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre is Scotland’s new writing theatre and started in 1963: it consists of two theatres. The Traverse has had many award-winning productions and a certain reputation for producing quality contemporary theatre, commissioning and supporting writers and facilitating script development workshops, rehearsed readings and public writing workshops.

It was founded by John Calder, Jim Haynes and Richard Demarco seeking to extend the spirit of the Festival throughout the year.

It commissions and develops new plays or adaptations from contemporary playwrights. It also presents a large number of productions from visiting companies from across the UK. These include new plays, adaptations, dance, physical theatre, puppetry and contemporary music.

The Traverse is a pivotal venue in Edinburgh, particularly during the Edinburgh Festivals in August. It is also the home of the Manipulate Visual Theatre Festival and the Imaginate Festival.
