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

Here you can submit an application to connect with us through our various programmes and initiatives. All submissions will be read by a member of the Traverse team. We look forward to hearing from you!

As well as producing our own shows, the Traverse presents a wide variety of new writing and new work from partner companies who come to us from Scotland, the UK and beyond. You can see the kinds of work we programme in the 'What's On' section of our website: We programme partner company slots in the following seasons:

Spring (running January to April)

Summer (running May - June)

Festival (running in August) as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Autumn (running September to December)

All submissions go via a curatorial process with our programming team for consideration.

This form is to help us with our programming, and so please fill out as best you can, and where there are any unknown areas, please let us know when these might be confirmed - i.e. co-producing billing or creative team and casting. We will operate a box office split with partner companies.

If you have any questions, you can contact Jenny Gilvear, Producing & Programme Coordinator: .
