    As a recognised platform for new playwriting and theatre talent, the Traverse Theatre is always looking for innovative new ways to engage with our upcoming writers.

    This Spring saw us undertake a new project, entitled Writing on the Wall, in conjunction with young writers from our Class Act, Young Writers and Scribble groups.

    All participants were challenged to produce short written pieces, no more than 200-words in length, on the theme of 'What Happens Next?' - their response to the current Referendum question.

    From the varied and accomplished pieces submitted, the Traverse Artistic team selected the work of eight writers, whose mini plays received a scratch performance with a professional ensemble of Traverse Theatre Company actors as part of National Theatre of Scotland's 5-Minute Theatre project June.

    These same pieces have also now been inscribed on walls and various surfaces throughout the Traverse building for public viewing. They will remain on display until September 2014. Why not come and discover these new voices?

    All Writing on the Wall artwork is by Emma Ahlqvist.
