Award winning director Gregory Thomson joins the Tron Theatre during their 25th anniversary year, with anticipation: 

'I'm delighted to be coming to the Tron at such an exciting time for Scottish theatre. The Tron is a place for theatre that is arresting, innovative and fun and I hope to continue with the practice of welcoming audiences to the best work whether made in Glasgow, Scotland or elsewhere'.

In 2006, he won the Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland award for Best Direction for Molly Sweeney at the Citizens’ Theatre.  He was also a 2006 recipient of the coveted Young Vic’s Jerwood Director’s Award.

Peter Lawson, Chairman of the Tron, said: 'Gregory is a highly experienced director and I am delighted that he has agreed to take up the position. Our 25th anniversary celebrations mark a new chapter in the Tron’s history and I am confident that this appointment will enable us to continue providing our audiences with a high quality diverse programme of work.'

Working extensively as a director in the UK and abroad, he most recently directed Henry VIII as part of the RSC Complete Works Festival.

Gregory was previously the Artistic Director of A and BC Theatre, founding the company in 1998.  Under his leadership, A and BC created innovative theatre, re-visiting classical texts with the aim of making them more accessible, and combining vivid physical imagery and live original music to create truly vibrant performances.
