TravFest17: Meet Me at Dawn

TravFest17: Meet Me at Dawn

TravFest17: The Whip Hand

TravFest17: The Whip Hand

It’s Dougie’s birthday. He just turned 50 and his family are throwing him a party. But it’s he who has a surprise for them. A bombshell proposal. Written by Douglas Maxwell, The Whip Hand is an explosive new play about power, privilege, blood ties and our inescapable past.

TravFest17: Letters to Morrissey

TravFest17: Letters to Morrissey

Created by Gary McNair and Gareth Nicholls, returning to the Traverse after their sell-out Festival hit A Gambler’s Guide to Dying, Letters to Morrissey is about confronting the worst thing you’ve done in your life, and hoping that it’s still possible to be a good person.
