GO Theatre In South West London

Theatre in South West London Open up your mind to a new world with a visit to one of South West London’s premier theatres.

As any theatre-lover will know there’s always a cutting edge play on offer at the internationally regarded Royal Court Theatre [map], Sloane Square. This is where Edward Bond, Richard Bean and the eponymous Joe Orton began their careers and this is definitely the place for those who want to be challenged, impassioned and inspired by some of Britain’s finest playwriting talent.

The Richmond Theatre [map] was built in 1899 and is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture. Located at The Green, Richmond, the theatre offers an innovative and exciting programme of established and new writing. This is where you’ll see famous faces in some very unfamiliar roles. Recent examples include Keith Waterhouse’s Billy Liar staring The Royle Family’s Ralf Little and Just Like That starring Jerome Flynn as Tommy Cooper.

If that’s all a bit too heavy, head to The Comedy Theatre [map], Panton Street. Contrary to its name, this theatre doesn’t just do belly laughs, there’s also a programme of comedy-drama from the likes of Jim Cartwright and Willy Russell.

A range of professional and amateur companies show you what they can do at the Battersea Arts Centre [map], Lavender Hill. There’s also a number of other activities happening here including adult learner courses and opportunities for the kids to get involved in some high-energy activities.

There’s a similar arts centre based at Lavender Hill, Battersea.

The Brixton Shaw Theatre [map], The Brix, Brixton Hill, is home to a highly regarded cultural programme, offering theatre for everyone. Performances here include new Shakespeare interpretations and work from one of Britain’s only Iranian touring theatre companies.

Combine great theatre with a sociable night and some great ale at one of South West London’s premier pub theatres.

The Finborough Arms [map] , Finborough Road, and the Whitebear Pub Theatre [map], Kennington Park Road, offers this winning combination plus some brand new writing talent.
