About the The Yard Theatre

The Yard Theatre is a space to explore new ideas, to nurture new talent and to share new experiences.

The Yard is a multi-award winning theatre venue located just minutes from the Olympic Stadium in London's Hackney Wick. The Yard was conceived by Jay Miller, and designed and built by Practice Architecture in collaboration with Christopher Daniel.

They converted a dormant warehouse in Queen's Yard, Hackney Wick, splitting it into two sections - one housing the theatre, and the other the bar, in which the back 'bowl' of the seating rake is fully visible. Made with recycled and reclaimed material, the theatre seats 110 in a fully raked amphitheatre. The stage is large, with four performer entrances and exits. There is a beauty in the collision between Greek and Elizabethan architecture and its juxtaposition in an industrial warehouse space where the concrete floor and corrugated roof are clearly visible.

Upcoming shows

Sex Sex Men Men

This is a show about desire. About that smoulder in your eyes that makes us melt. A show about the electricity when you brush hands, press flesh, bruise skin. It's about power. About exchanging tongues, breaths, moans. About sensuality.

The Crucible

A story from the past brought crashing into the present. A world in which lies and truth are indistinguishable. Where hatreds and desires are born, confessed, revenged.
