A special celebration of all things playwriting in Scotland, jointly hosted by Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland and the Scottish Society of Playwrights at the Traverse.

This year, the Studio reaches its 20th year of support and advocacy for Scotland’s playwrights, SSP commemorates its 50th anniversary with a year of SSP@50 Fellowships and events, and the Traverse itself is 60!

To mark these milestones, this one-off event will include readings of two iconic plays from SSP’s and Playwrights’ Studio’s founding years. There will also be a lively panel discussion on playwriting then, now and into the future, followed by a reception to meet with friends and colleagues, talk, argue and put Scottish theatre to rights. No change there, then…

Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland is funded by Creative Scotland.
The SSP gratefully acknowledges the support of Creative Scotland for SSP@50.
The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council.
