GO Theatre In South East London

Theatre in South East London If you’re looking for a venue to see some excellent theatre, South East London wouldn’t immediately spring to mind.

But unlike the expensive and crowded West End, you’ll find a variety of drama productions appealing to a wide range of tastes and a greater diversity than the typical musical theatre offerings of Central London.

Start your theatre journey at the highly-acclaimed Warehouse Theatre [map], Dingwall Road, Croydon. This theatre is at the forefront of developing new writing and has taken many plays to The Royal Court [map] and Stratford-Upon-Avon. So get in there early and see where it all begins with a visit to this venue located in an old cement warehouse. Famous productions have included premieres from the likes of Caryl Churchill, Kevin Hood and Peter Moffat.

Head to Deptford for an evening of entertainment at The Albany Theatre [map], Douglas Way. The Albany is a multi-use performance and digital art venue and benefits from a commitment to emerging talent. Catch some of the very best new drama here which aims to reflect a multi-cultural community, or enjoy some razor sharp wit from some of Britain’s most popular new comedians.

If you like to enjoy theatre in an intimate environment you’ll be delighted to discover The Birds Nest Theatre [map], Deptford Church Street. This small venue is located above a pub but still manages to pull in great crowds and some top-name performers.

For modernist theatre with minimalist sets head to The Southwark Playhouse [map], a 90-seat studio located at Southwark Bridge Road. Just a short distance from the famous Globe Theatre, the Playhouse is an excellent example of how theatre has transformed since Shakespeare’s day and you’ll be able to enjoy a packed programme from some of the UK’s most exciting and vibrant young writers.

One name that everybody who enjoys light entertainment will be familiar with is Bob Hope [map], and the theatre that bares his name lies on the Wythfield Road, Eltham. See the best of amateur theatre at this venue that has been established for more than 60 years.

Catch all the popular touring productions and familiar faces at The Broadway Theatre [map], Catford Broadway. This is a great venue to take the whole family for musicals, tribute shows and television personality-led productions, as well as a popular traditional annual pantomime.

For a simliar programme check out the Greenwich Theatre [map], Crooms Hill, which has recently enjoyed a programme of rejuvenation.
