As Scotland’s only theatre wholly dedicated to new writing, The Traverse Theatre strives to discover, nurture and produce the brightest new voices across Scotland, the UK and Ireland.
Each year they open our submissions window seeking bold, brilliant and innovative new plays.
“We know that exploring big ideas works best on our stages. We’re looking for stories with as much heart as head and for writers that have something new to say about the world today. Whether you’re an established playwright or a first-time writer with a brilliant story, we want to hear from you!”
Open Submissions breaks down the boundaries, allowing your work to be read by the Traverse’s team of readers. Scripts are read anonymously allowing us to focus solely on the story you have to tell. Connecting us with new work and new writers; it is the first step of a creative and fruitful journey from page to stage.
They particularly encourage submissions from voices and communities which are under-represented in theatre – both onstage and off.
