The Traverse’s highly successful First Stages Festival will return to showcase new plays by artists making their Traverse playwriting debut.
In 2021, presentations included the first rehearsed reading performance of the now Popcorn Award-winning This is Paradise by Michael John O'Neill - alongside new development opportunities to writers, artists and audiences around the world on a range of topics and themes. Including workshops, discussions, and with many events continuing to take place digitally, audiences can select sessions and readings according to their own needs to create their own bespoke development programme.
Full line up announced in Feb 2022.
First Stages Festival 2022 is generously supported by the Dr David Summers Charitable Trust and the Noël Coward Foundation.
