Traverse Theatre

The Trustees of the ALW Foundation were delighted to award a grant to the Traverse Theatre in October 2015 towards their Class Act Project, a professionally led 6-month playwriting scheme for up to 70 secondary school children aged 15 to 18 from five state schools across Edinburgh. The funding will support creative writing workshops held both at the theatre and in schools, to challenge and encourage pupils to draft, develop and stage their own pieces of new writing with the final performances being taken to the Traverse stage. Ellen Gledhill, Traverse Theatre's Development Manager said "Please extend our gratitude to the Trustees and all at the Foundation; with your support we can nurture the next generation of playwrights, inspiring young people to engage with the theatre and the cultural sector" Photographer credit - Aly Wright
