Traverse Theatre Company

A forest in winter. A city at night. The first fall of snow.
Where do the tracks lead? What waits in the dark?
Two plays. One inspiration.
A seasonal tale of lovers, loners and carnivores.

The Traverse Theatre presents a very special double bill of short plays by two of its most successful alumni, Rona Munro (The James Plays, Iron, The Last Witch) and Stephen Greenhorn (Passing Places, Sunshine on Leith), both defining voices in Scottish theatre.

Featuring an ensemble company and a colourful musical score, Tracks of the Winter Bear provides the perfect escape for those dark December nights.

Tracks of the Winter Bear is directed by Traverse Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin (Swallow, Spoiling, Ciara) and Traverse Associate Director Zinnie Harris (The Garden, While You Lie).

Post-show Discussion: Sat 19 Dec, 7.30pm
