Working with the Traverse on the development of The Dark Things was one of the highlights of my career. I really appreciated the importance that was placed on realising the initial vision that I had for the play and the encouragement I was given to be as brave as I could be. For me, these are such vital elements for the development of any new play.

Ursula Rani Sarma - The Dark Things (Traverse Theatre Company) 

The Traverse has a rich history of working with some of the most adventurous playwrights both in Scotland and around the world. 

We work with playwrights at every stage of their career, reading and feeding back on scripts, hosting play development workshops, commissioning new work, and providing one to one meetings between writers and a member of our Artistic team.

As well as writers groups like Traverse Young Writers and The Playwrights' Toolkit, more informal writers' events take place at the Traverse Throughout the year. We invite people to get under the skin of new writing in all of its forms.

Well-known Traverse productions include Midsummer [a play with songs] by David Greig and Gordon McIntyre, Knives in Hens by David Harrower, Iron by Rona Munro, Gagarin Way by Gregory Burke, Bondagers  by Sue Glover and The Slab Boys Trilogy by John Byrne.
