Tron CREATIVE is committed to providing opportunities and support for artists. We work to encourage, develop and signal-boost the vibrant and talented community of creative practitioners making theatre in Glasgow.

Through a busy programme of artistic development opportunities, workshops, residencies and advice sessions, we offer a welcoming environment to create exciting new work that will populate future Tron programmes.


BUILD is our commitment to delivering a quarterly programme of development activities for theatre professionals.


The 2023/24 Resident Writer provides a Scotland-based playwright the opportunity to write and develop the first draft of a new piece of theatre. As well as a fee for the work they will receive a package of support, including dramaturgical sessions and a public rehearsed reading of their new play.


LabWeek is a weeklong residency opportunity for theatre makers to play and experiment with an idea. LabWeek aims to provide support that will move a project forward both creatively and logistically. The residency includes a week in the Changing House and a £3,500 budget.


Writer Lab, in partnership with Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland, is a new weeklong writer residency opportunity, giving a professional playwright space to experiment with a new idea for a text in a rehearsal room. The Writer Lab will enable a writer to work with collaborators to approach a new idea and explore its potential by providing space, support, provocation and a £3,500 budget.


A curated scratch night, presenting a selection of brand new ideas from theatre-makers and live artists to an audience keen to see the boldest new performance Glasgow has to offer.
