Traverse Theatre

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The Traverse Theatre is a dynamic centre for performance, experience and discovery. Enabling people to access and engage with theatre is our fundamental mission, and we want our work to represent, speak to and be seen by the broadest cross-section of society.

Our year-round programme bursts with new stories and live performances that challenge, inform and entertain our audiences.

We are proud to present an exciting and dynamic range of new writing and new work from local, national and international artists and companies in every Traverse season.


  • Autumn – September to December
  • Spring – January to April
  • Summer – May to July
  • Festival – throughout August, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Every season is curated, and all submissions will be read by our team for consideration. So if you have a piece of work you think would be suitable for the Traverse, please complete the form as soon as you’re able to.

We look forward to hearing from you!
