Sinopsis

TravCast is the podcast from the Traverse, Scotlands new writing theatre. We interview well-known playwrights and theatre-makers whose work features in the year-round programme at the Traverse. The Traverse is Scotlands new writing theatre. Formed in 1963 by a group of passionate theatre enthusiasts, the Traverse was founded to extend the spirit of the Edinburgh festivals throughout the year. Today, under Artistic Director Orla OLoughlin, the Traverse nurtures emerging talent, produces award-winning new plays and offers a curated programme of the best work from the UK and beyond, spanning theatre, dance, performance, music and spoken word. The Traverse has launched the careers of some of the UKs most celebrated writers David Greig, David Harrower and Zinnie Harris and continues to discover and support new voices Stef Smith, Morna Pearson, Gary McNair and Rob Drummond. With two custom-built and versatile theatre spaces, the Traverses home in Edinburghs city centre is a powerhouse of vibrant new work for, and of, our time. Every August, it holds an iconic status as the theatrical heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Outside the theatre walls, it runs an extensive engagement programme, offering audiences of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to explore, create and develop. Further afield, the Traverse frequently tours internationally and engages in exchanges and partnerships most recently in Quebec, New Zealand and South Korea.
