We are…

…Scotland’s national theatre

We tell the stories that need to be told.

… a Theatre Without Walls

We take our work to wherever audiences are to be found. We showcase Scottish culture at home and around the world, telling stories in ways never seen before.

… a theatre for everyone

We want to break down the walls that prevent people from engaging with our work, whether economic, cultural or physical.

… a creative catalyst for the theatre sector in Scotland

Driving joined up talent development plans with partners across Scotland, to nurture theatre makers at all stages of their careers and reflect the diversity of contemporary Scotland.

We are…

… On the ferry and in the local pub. In the forests and tower blocks. In submarines and swimming pools. On the biggest stages and in the smallest community halls.
