Become an Individual Supporter

We know that, like us, many have a passion for new writing and wish to support emerging talent, inspiring generations of theatre makers and entertaining audiences.

Our supporters share and enable our commitment to new writing, helping us to launch and nurture talent through our Open Submissions programme and commissioning of new work. The Traverse remains the theatrical heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, presenting a truly international stage in Scotland; historic, iconic, yet always new.

In becoming an individual supporter you will provide essential support that helps to create and maintain our exciting annual programme, with award-winning productions such as Ciara, Spoiling, Swallow and Milk.

Individual supporters enjoy a glimpse behind the scenes of the theatre, from our engagement programme to our active play commissions, with unique opportunities to attend script read-throughs and meet the artistic team.

We have five giving levels, which start at £180 per year - £15 a month. You can become an individual supporter at any time, donating in a one-off annual payment or by monthly or quarterly commitments.

To discuss becoming an individual supporter and to hear more about our supporter scheme's giving levels, please contact Ellen Gledhill, Development Manager on 0131 228 3223 or at
