Meet the Positive Stories for Negative Times Season 4 Writers


10 June 2024

Wonder Fools and the Traverse Theatre are delighted to reveal the six new writers as part of Positive Stories for Negative Times Season 4.

We have co-commissioned some of the most exciting voices in theatre to create new work for those between the ages of 6 and 25. Artists this season include Ella Hickson, Adura Onashile, Travis Alabanza, James Ley, Mammalian Diving Reflex, and Young Writer Hannah Low. The plays are written specifically for the times we are living in and will be available to participating groups from September 2024 to September 2025.

Season 4 is all about opening up exciting cultural opportunities, boosting the self-confidence of participants and changing the way we think about theatre for young people.
