Current shows


Bartholomew Fair


Featuring a dizzying array of characters and a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds, Bartholomew Fair is an extraordinarily exuberant panorama of London life.


Previews from: Friday 23 August 2019

Closes: Saturday 12 October 2019



Upcoming shows


Deep Night, Dark Night


Two sets of eerie evenings will combine the greatest ghost stories from the past, chilling tales from the present (including a new story by Jeanette Winterson), and unnerving real-life accounts of our haunted London.


Previews from: Wednesday 30 October 2019

Closes: Thursday 5 December 2019



Henry VI


An England divided under a weak leader spirals from political unrest to all-out civil war. Allegiances are sworn and murderous factions fight for power, but with only one crown for the taking, who will be left standing to lead the country?


Previews from: Tuesday 5 November 2019

Closes: Sunday 26 January 2020



Richard III


The battle scars from the Wars of the Roses are yet to heal but that's not going to deter power-hungry Richard. The crown should be his and no one is going to stop him from getting it: not the King, his own wife, or the Princes in the Tower.


Previews from: Wednesday 13 November 2019

Closes: Sunday 26 January 2020



Swive


The power of kings is never predicated on their appearance. In Swive, Hickson shines candlelight on the savage pressure that women are under to sell themselves on their least interesting quality.


Previews from: Friday 6 December 2019

Closes: Saturday 15 February 2020



The Taming of the Shrew


Katharina and Bianca, the daughters of a rich man of Padua, are ready to marry. The game is simple: the youngest can be won only if the eldest finds her equal. But Katharina is strong-willed and not afraid to challenge the rules.


Previews from: Saturday 1 February 2020

Closes: Saturday 18 April 2020
