Traverse Theatre

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


If you are interested in being part of a specific Traverse season as a visiting company, you can fill in our on-line submission form here.

As well as producing our own shows, the Traverse presents a wide variety of new writing and new work from visiting 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 visiting company slots in the following seasons:

Autumn (running September to December)
Spring (running February to June)
Festival (running in August) as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe  

Every Traverse season is curated, and all submissions will be read by our programming team for consideration.

N.B. If the season you wish to be part of is not listed here, please contact Producer Ruth McEwan ( - Do not fill out a form for the incorrect season.
