Traverse Theatre

Door open days

The Traverse Theatre inhabits a unique position as Scotland’s only theatre wholly dedicated to the discovery, development and presentation of new dramatic work. A vibrant artistic powerhouse in central Edinburgh, the Traverse produces an inspiring programme of the best work from the UK and beyond, covering theatre, dance, music and spoken word. From its origins as a theatre club on Edinburgh’s Lawnmarket, the Traverse has been at its current, custom-built home in Saltire Court since 1992.
