The Tron Theatre is situated on the Trongate, one of the city’s oldest streets, and Chisholm Street, in the Merchant City area. It was converted in the 1980s from the virtually derelict 1795 Tron Church building with its steeple and clock. The Tron Church tower of 1592 still survives, but the Renaissance kirk was destroyed by fire in the 18th century by the Hell Fire Club. The present theatre company began as the Glasgow Theatre Club in 1978, created by Joe Gerber, Tom Laurie and Tom McGrath and developed into one of Scotland’s leading mid-scale producing and presenting theatres. Its eclectic programme features dance, comedy, music and drama. The present theatre opened its doors in 1981. The theatre also has drama workshops for children and young people, and creative writing courses for adults. It is known for producing contemporary theatrical work.
