Watch theatre at the Southwark Playhouse

Established in the 1990s in a disused workshop in Southwark by Juliet Alderdice, Tom Wilson & Mehmet Ergen, today the Southwark Playhouse Theatre Company aims to provide accessible theatre, creating opportunities for emerging theatre types and people in the local community to get involved.

Working from the vaults beneath London Bridge Station, they remain true to those aims, claiming to work with over 5,000 school pupils a year, offering free performances and teaching. They also run a youth-led theatre company for local people between the ages of 16-25, to introduce them to theatre, and inspire them to consider a career in the arts.

Most of all, however, they provide a full theatre programme showcasing up and coming talent, and often reinterpreting classic plays and contemporary plays. For more information, see http://southwarkplayhouse.co.uk/
