Tron Theatre Artistic Director Andy Arnold announces his final season after 16-year tenure

Glasgow Tron Theatre has enjoyed another successful and busy season, delivering some of the most exciting new work being staged in Scotland at the moment, including a blistering re-mount of Eilidh Loan's Moorcroft in July, which will go out on tour across Scotland with National Theatre of Scotland this October; and a 5-star production of Cyprus Avenue by David Ireland, which will return for a week-long run in Glasgow's Pavilion Theatre in early 2024.

The Tron today announced their new programme for Autumn-Winter 2023, but at the same time are saddened to announce that it will be Artistic Director, Andy Arnold's last season at the venue as he stands down from the role after almost sixteen years at the artistic helm.

Shereen Nanjiani MBE, Chair of the Board of Trustees says of Andy's time as Artistic Director:

'In his time at the Tron, Andy Arnold has given us so many exciting, provocative - often downright absurd - but always entertaining theatre experiences. Throughout even the toughest of times, he's remained passionately committed to the Tron's vital role in the theatre eco-system and a vocal advocate for the sector as a whole. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I thank him for everything he's done for the Tron.'

Says Andy of his last-ever season with the Tron Theatre:

'I have such mixed emotions about introducing this programme for Autumn-Winter 2023 - a great and very typical Tron season, but also, alas, my last. I originally saw my post at the Tron as a short-term venture to round off my Glasgow theatre work following my lengthy tenure at the Arches, but instead, fell in love with making and staging work at the Tron and built such strong relationships with the brilliant team there as well as with all the artists who have passed through our doors over the years, that the short-term venture has lasted over fifteen years! The time is right for me to move on and I'm extremely proud to be closing out my role as the Tron's Artistic Director with such a full and vibrant programme.'



Tron Theatre is a unique and flagship organisation as the West of Scotland's only mid-scale producing venue which delivers challenging new and contemporary performance for the people of Glasgow, Scotland, and worldwide while at the same time playing a vital role at the heart of the Scottish theatre community and facilitating participation in the arts amongst people of all ages, race, ability, and gender.
