Tandem Writing Collective
We are a female led writing collective established and run by playwrights, Jennifer Adam, Amy Hawes and Mhairi Quinn. We travel between Edinburgh and Glasgow showcasing our plays and linking up with grassroots theatremakers as we go.
Tandem has new writing at its heart. The collective was formed to create and perform short topical pieces of experimental theatre. Our events offer 5-6 short form plays, which are rehearsed in the afternoon and then performed script in hand that evening. Each show also features live music from excellent local musicians.
Our stories are always current and push boundaries in terms of form and content. We aim to entertain and educate and we do so in a relaxed, informal environment. We began in 2016 in the function rooms of local pubs, and despite our work now being welcomed at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow and the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh, we still like to maintain that fun and relaxed vibe in our shows.
