About Above The Stag Theatre


Above The Stag Theatre's new home opened in June 2018 with a production of Jonathan Harvey's Beautiful Thing.


It is housed in two connecting railway arches on Albert Embankment featuring two theatre spaces - a 100 seat end-on theatre and a flexible 60+ seat studio - as well as a bar and coffee shop and a dedicated rehearsal space.


Known for its focus on gay-themed work, Above The Stag is the UK's only dedicated LGBT+ theatre, and produces the vast majority of its shows in-house.


It was founded in 2008 in a function room above the now-demolished Stag gay pub in Victoria, before moving to its first Vauxhall venue in 2013, growing a large and loyal audience.


Above The Stag presents drama, comedies, musicals and cabaret, an award-winning annual pantomime, play readings and exhibitions.
