Work with us

Braw Clan is the Scots language theatre company, based in Clydesdale. Scots is one of the three indigenous languages of Scotland, along with English and Scottish Gaelic. Find out why we make plays in Scots here.

As an emerging company, our goal is to collaborate with a wide range of theatre-makers so that our programming, casting and creative teams represent Scotland's culture diversity.

AUDIENCE MEMBER

"I wasn't sure before I came but I really enjoyed the story and hearing the Scots language."

Cast & company submissions

We see Scots language theatre as a way to unite people from different social, economic and cultural backgrounds. If you're a professional theatre practitioner who'd like to work with us, drop us a note of interest below. We can't reply to every submission but it's good to know about you. If a relevant project comes up, we'll keep you in mind.

Play submissions

Braw Clan currently accepts only solicited material and project proposals from its ensemble. Unfortunately, we're unable to accept samples or enquiries at this time. Playwrights are encouraged to contact Playwrights Studio Scotland for support - they offer a script-reading service, a mentorship scheme, play development bursaries and much more.

Gripping stories, in Scots.

Braw Clan's actors work far and wide, performing for companies like Shakespeare's Globe, the BBC, ITV and Netflix. But Clydesdale is our home. When we turn up to do a play in your village hall, you better believe we're going to make it a night to remember.
