TravFest19 Week 3: This is your final call

News 19 Aug 2019

After another year filled with the most exciting, provocative and diverse stories from around the world, TravFest19 is coming to a close on Sunday. We can't believe it's almost over! But don't you worry - there is still time to enjoy some of this Festival's most talked-about shows at the Traverse... if you're quick!


Week Two was another busy awards week for #TravFest19 productions with two shows winning a coveted Fringe First Award from The Scotsman. The winning shows, The Patient Gloria (which also picked up a Herald Angel award this week) and Until the Flood, join our week one winners; How Not to Drown, Enough and Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran.

We also can't shout loud enough about how pleased we are that Angus Taylor and Shauna Macdonald, the stars of one of our festival productions, Mouthpiece, were been announced as recipients of The Stage Edinburgh Award last week.

Huge congratulations also goes to Crocodile Fever which has been shortlisted for the Scottish Theatre Awards on the Fringe (formerly the Scottish Arts Club Award).
