Original Producer

The Tron is one of Scotland’s leading producing theatres. It is based in central Glasgow and is a middle scale atmospheric receiving house as well as the home of Tron Theatre Company. It was established in 1982 and Sir Michael Boyd was its Artistic Director for ten years before moving to head the RSC in Stratford. Tron Theatre Company is under the artistic leadership of Andy Arnold, who is Joint Chief Executive of the organisation with Executive Director, Sam Gough. The theatre focuses mainly on new work and new adaptations of existing classics and has a particular reputation for premiering Scottish and Irish work - including the world premiere stage adaptation of James Joyce’s Ulysses – which The Tron took around Scotland, Ireland, and across to mainland China. Apart from its own productions which play to Glasgow, Scottish and international audiences, Tron Theatre has a strong commitment to developing the work of local emerging theatre makers and exploring new ways of making theatre with exciting young artists. One such collaboration has been with Blood of the Young and, in particular with their director Paul Brotherston and writer/ actor, Isobel McArthur. Over a few years the Tron supported Isobel on some brilliant initiatives which gave the theatre the confidence to commission her to write Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) - with the mad notion that this classic English novel could be presented on stage with five young women playing all the characters. This wonderful piece of theatre was produced at The Tron in the summer of 2018.
