I Hope Your Flowers Bloom

To:04-05-2024

Flitting between romantic obsession and botanical description, Raymond Wilson’s semi-autobiographical show offers a raw, moving and genuinely funny exploration of healthy masculinity, self-worth and working-class access to nature.

Through his friendship with Flo and her modern nomadic lifestyle, Raymond attempts to escape the greyness of the Glasgow scheme into Scotland’s natural world. But when Flo leaves, so does Raymond’s love of the wilderness. Inside and broken-hearted, he’s forced to admit the things he has neglected in himself and with others, while attempting to reconnect to the outdoors.

Radiant Vermin
From:27-06-2024
To:13-07-2024
+ More Info +

Getting a foot on the property ladder is murder...

Ollie and Jill want to tell you about their dream home. Some of the things they did to get it, you might find shocking. But they want you to know that they did it all for their baby...

A wickedly comic satire about a young couple offered a 'too-good-to-be-true' way onto the property ladder. Playful, provocative and viciously sharp, this outrageous black comedy is a mediation on how far we will go to satisfy - and justify - materialistic greed.

Tron Theatre is located in the Merchant City area of Glasgow. Originally a church, the building has been on the same site since the early 16th century. It has been the established venue of the award-winning Tron Theatre Company since 1980. Although the theatre is mainly recognised as a producing house, it also receives an eclectic visiting programme from the UK and abroad.

Tron Theatre presents a diverse programme all year round, staging new and contemporary classics across two theatre spaces: the Main Auditorium which has a capacity of 230, and the Changing House with a capacity of 62.

Recently Tron Theatre have shaken up ticket pricing by moving away from the traditional method of Full Price and Concession tickets, and now offer 3 price points for customers to choose from, based on their budgets, for performances taking place in their Main Auditorium and a flat rate for performances in their Changing House, as well as Previews - unless otherwise stated.
