Alhimself @ The Traverse: New Season, New Writing

As you may know, we here at Alhimself are big fans of The Traverse, and with October seeing the release of The Traverse theatre’s winter season, I thought I’d look back at some of the best shows they had on offer in the Autumn and look forward to some top shows from Scotland’s new writing theatre (which also happens to be one of the best bars in town).

Coming up this October, the return of A Play, A Pie and A Pint .  The fourth season of the successful program, has five world premieres by the UK’s hottest new playwrights. The performances take place at 1pm from Tuesday to Saturday, which gives you the chance to spend your lunchtime watching a brilliant 45 minute play – with a pie and a pint – simple as that. To whet your appetite check out Katie Douglas’ Dig, a tale of economic hardship and the struggle between pride and providing. Also highly recommended is Leo Butler’s Eternal Source of Light, which promises to explore birth, life, death, and the prospect of an afterlife in just forty-five minutes.

Some of Autumn’s best from The Trav included I, Malvolio & the award-winning The Wheel, for interviews with Zinnie Harris and Tim Crouch, check out The Traverse’ podcasts here.
