Visiting Companies

Visiting Companies

As well as producing our own shows, the Traverse presents a wide variety of new writing and new work from visiting companies who come to us from Scotland, the UK and beyond. You can see the kind of work we present in the what's on section of our website. Please take time to consider how your work sits within our programme and theatre space. 

We programme visiting company slots in the following seasons:

Autumn (September to December)
Spring (January to June)
Festival (August) as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe  

Due to the high number of enquiries we receive for each season, we have introduced an online submission process. This helps us to track all our submissions more efficiently, and will help you to present and us to receive all the necessary information for an effective conversation about potential programming.

If you are interested in being part of a specific Traverse season as a visiting company, please  fill in our on-line submission form here:


Every Traverse season is curated, and all submissions will be read by our programming team for consideration.

N.B. We can receive hundreds of submissions per season, so please keep in mind that we might not be able to respond immediately.
