Traverse Theatre announces Spring Season 2016

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."
