Merry - A Festive Suitcase Story

Merry - A Festive Suitcase Story

About Merry - A Festive Suitcase Story

Last year while the Tron Theatre doors were closed due to the pandemic, we packed our suitcases and took the Tron out to our communities in a safe and socially distanced way. Suitcase Stories saw artists create professional mini street theatre experiences performed from a suitcase as a pop-up event in locations across the city. During lockdown, artists brought the magic of performance to households across Glasgow performing at the end of garden paths, in flat stairwells and doorsteps.

Tron Participation really enjoyed being on the road and meeting and connecting with new audiences. This year we are keen to continue to meet new people in a non-theatre environment. This December we are delighted to once again be working with The Audio Story Company to create a brand-new festive pop up to take on the road to invited local primary schools, community groups, St Enoch’s Centre and Xsite, Braehead.

Merry is always ready for a party! She loves birthdays, the last day of school, family celebrations, special holidays and especially Christmas.

Merry just wishes she could feel festive all the time.

Join Merry on her most adventurous mission yet – can she track down and capture the Festive Spirit? A seasonal audio adventure for all the family.

We’ll be visiting shopping centres for a limited number of free performances, perfect for those aged 5-10 and their families. Merry is experienced through audio headsets (provided by us) and runs for 15-20 minutes.
