Why?

We’re the smallest producing theatre in the West End, but we have the biggest heart and the biggest dreams.

We believe nothing is impossible in our intimate space. We can stage anything from one-person shows to musicals. Every few weeks our theatre transforms into something and somewhere new.

We have faith in our artists’ talent and trust in our audiences’ curiosity.

Everyone who works here becomes part of our family, and our audience members are our friends.

Whether it’s in writing, production teams, casting, stage management or design, we challenge ourselves to produce work of an international quality, to be enjoyed in the most intimate theatre in London.

Who?

We’re a theatre for writers and actors, supported by creative and innovative direction and design.

We work with artists of international standing, alongside those at the start of their careers.

We collaborate with other theatres to bring outstanding work from around the UK and the world to the centre of London and to spread our work to new places.

We put female artists and female stories at the heart of what we do. Over half of our on- and off-stage teams are women. We celebrate the diversity of our modern world.

We’re a theatre for everyone. We keep our ticket prices accessible and our bar prices low.

How?

Every time we create work, we aspire for excellence.

We expect and encourage a safe environment of brilliant ideas, mutual respect, shared skills, and kindness.

Our ticket sales can only account for around 60% of our costs. We have no regular public funding, so we rely on generous individuals and small trusts to fund our overheads and our work.

Many of our staff are volunteers, giving up their time freely for love of this theatre.

Within our means, we’ll always put our artists first. We work with company wages. We are a full signatory to the Equity Fringe Agreement, guaranteeing a legal wage and protected working conditions for everyone.
