– Traverse Theatre Tripadvisor Review
Did you know?
The name Traverse actually comes from a mispronunciation of “transverse” theatre layout, in which the audience sits on either side of the stage, facing towards each other. This was the seating arrangement in the company’s first theatre club, but by the time the Artistic Director realised his mistake, the name had stuck and it was too late to change it.
