Tron Theatre is located in the Merchant City area of Glasgow. Originally the building was a church, having 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 was originally called Tron Kirk (Kirk being a Scottish word for church) and there remain parts of the building which stood on the site since 1529. The church was severely damaged by a fire which was lit as a supposed prank by the notorious Glaswegian Hellfire Club. The building went into a state of disuse for the next two centuries until the Glasgow Theatre Club began to use it in the early 1970s. In 1980 the Tron Theatre was established when the club officially took over ownership of the building.

Since its early days, Tron Theatre has been well-recognised as a home to new writing and dynamic productions. Under the artistic leadership of Michael Boyd, the Tron went from strength to strength and established a powerhouse reputation. During this period, major names began to emerge from the venue including Alan Cumming, Peter Mullan, Craig Ferguson and Craig Armstrong. The Tron has presented some highly successful shows, such as “The Wonderful World Of Dissocia” which went on to win multiple awards and tour the UK with the National Theatre of Scotland.

Tron Theatre presents a diverse programme all year round, staging new and contemporary classics across two theatre spaces: the Mainhouse which has a capacity of 230, and the Changing House Studio with a capacity of 50.
