At the heart of the Traverse is a past and present full of daring, forward-facing artists. This year's Breakfast Plays give a glimpse of the now and new from four of the most exciting rising voices in Scottish theatre. Mentored by established playwrights Zinnie Harris, Stephen Greenhorn, Linda McLean and Douglas Maxwell, four emergent women writers (Erin McGee, Eve Nicol, Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir, Diane Stewart) showcase the imminent future of Scottish new writing talent. Their plays; poetic, punchy, generous and unforgiving will tackle topics exploring where we are and where we might be headed next - politically, socially, culturally. Kick start your festival day with these world premiere script-in-hand readings, and enjoy a breakfast roll with your ticket.
