Traverse Theatre announces Spring Season 2016
07 December 2015 ← return to listing
The Traverse is proud to announce its Spring Season today,
featuring new work from Scotland and beyond.
The Traverse Theatre is delighted to welcome back Michael Boyd to
direct Right Now by Quebeçois playwright,
Catherine-Anne Toupin, in a translation by Chris Campbell.
Following an international exchange in Autumn 2014 with Montréal's
Théâtre La Licorne, Right Now will be presented in a
co-production between the Traverse Theatre, Theatre Royal Bath
Ustinov Studio and Bush Theatre from 19 April - 7 May. First
performed in English as a script-in-hand reading as part of the
Traverse's New Writing from Quebec project, Right Now is a
thrilling contemporary work; a disquieting exploration of one
woman's crisis and darkest desires.
Crash by Andy Duffy, fresh from its
sell-out success in the Traverse Festival 2015 programme, will tour
the UK in April and May 2016. The story of an enigmatic trader
attempting to rebuild his life following a tragedy, this tense and
brooding one-man show has captivated audiences on its journey from
A Play, A Pie and A Pint to a full Traverse Theatre
Company production. It tours to Pleasance Islington, London (12 -
24 April); Tron Theatre, Glasgow (27 - 28 April); Traverse Theatre,
Edinburgh (29 - 30 April); Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol (3 - 4
May) and Sherman Cymru, Cardiff (6 - 7 May).
Traverse Artistic Director Orla O'Loughlin said, "I am
delighted to announce our Spring 2016 season. Not only are we
presenting our European premiere of Right Now in a major new
co-production, we are also celebrating the 24th
ground-breaking year of Class Act and seeing last year's hit Crash
head out on a UK tour. I am thrilled to welcome so many wonderful
visiting companies to our stages. Spring 2016 has been a labour of
love to curate."
