Since its launch in February 2006, the National Theatre of Scotland has been involved in creating more than 186 productions in over 156 different locations.
The Company produces its own work and collaborates with other theatre companies, local authorities, and individual artists to create a variety of performances, from large-scale productions through to theatre specifically made for the smallest venues.
Many different spaces have been used for productions, as well as conventional theatres: airports and tower blocks, community halls and drill halls, ferries and forests. The National Theatre of Scotland also tours some of its work internationally (for example, Black Watch has toured to the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and South Korea).
Laurie Sansom is the current Artistic Director, having taken up the post in March 2013. Vicky Featherstone was the founding Artistic Director and held the post from before the theatre's launch in 2006, to 2013.
