Established to make Glasgow independent from London for its dramatic supplies, it produces plays which the Glasgow playgoers would otherwise not have the opportunity of seeing.
By the end of the 70's the Citizens' had become recognised as one of the leading theatres in Britain.
Their vision for the Citizens' Theatre included the lowering of ticket prices, the provision of free previews of every show and free programmes for every member of the audience. A policy adhered to for over thirty years.
The spaces are also used by a wide variety of other theatre and arts organisations, as well as TV, film and community projects.
TAG Theatre Company has always had links with the Citizens’ Theatre. Established in 1967 as the Citizens' Theatre for Youth, TAG developed its work for children and young people across the city as it became Theatre About Glasgow, before emerging as one of the key companies providing theatre and educational activities for children and young people across Scotland - known simply as TAG.
The Citizens' and TAG now work together to create an unrivalled range of work in Scotland, emanating from the one building.
Together we provide high quality main house theatre and studio productions, touring theatre for children and young people, a young company, a community company and a diverse range of education and outreach work.
