The Traverse Theatre is a dynamic centre for performance, experience and discovery. Enabling people to access and engage with theatre is our fundamental mission, and we want our work to represent, speak to and be seen by the broadest cross-section of society.

Our year-round programme bursts with new stories and live performances that challenge, inform and entertain our audiences.

We are proud to present an exciting and dynamic range of new writing and new work from local, national and international artists and companies in every Traverse season.

Our 4 seasons are:

  • Autumn – September to December
  • Spring – January to April
  • Summer – May to July
  • Festival – throughout August, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Every season is curated, and all submissions will be read by our team for consideration. So if you have a piece of work you think would be suitable for the Traverse, please complete the form as soon as you’re able to.

We receive a high number of enquiries for each season, and use an online submission form to collate all relevant information.

Further information regarding our performance spaces and facilities for visiting companies can be found in the Technical section, and our current programme can be found in What's On.

We look forward to hearing from you!

For enquiries about bringing your work to the Traverse, or if you have questions about the submission process, please contact Senior Producer, Ruth McEwan:
