Bush Theatre

Influential theatre based in the former library in Shepherds Bush, specialising in new writing.

7 Uxbridge Road, London, W12 8LJ

Tube: Shepherd's Bush Market Station (Hammersmith and City Line) , Goldhawk Road Station, Shepherd's Bush Station (Central)

 
 

London's essential theatre for new writing has been the first step into the big time for dozens of Britain's best playwrights. Challenging, disturbing and original works are often accepted by the Bush Theatre, and find their way to the West End. Moving from the room above O'Neill's pub in Shepherds Bush Green to the former Shepherd's Bush Library building on Uxbridge Road in 2011, the theatre acquired larger premises as well as a laid back bar/library and cafe (open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 11pm), worth a visit even if you're not here to watch a play. Thankfully, despite the increased space - increasing capacity from 81 to seating for 144 people - the wonderful intimacy of the original venue remains intact, and the move can only help attract new audiences to this exceptional theatre. The theatrical experience and the quality of the acting talent who have been drawn to the Bush Theatre over the years is most impressive, with Alan Rickman, Anthony Sher, Simon Callow and Alison Steadman all putting in performances on the Bush's stage. Artistic Director Josie Rourke (2007-2011) left the Bush Theatre at the end of December 2011, handing over the reins to Madani Younis whose first season began in April 2012.

Landor Pub Theatre

A small theatre housed in a pub, which delivers solid performances of musicals and new plays.

70 Landor Road, Brixton, London, SW9 9PH

Tube: Clapham North Station

 
 

You're never more than three rows away from the action at the Landor Theatre where the audience never exceeds 60. Focussed on producing musical theatre productions in an intimate environment, the Landor Theatre, located on the first floor of The Landor Pub in Clapham, is considered one of the top pub theatres in London. What began as the Cage Theatre in 1994 soon became Upstairs At The Landor in 1995 under the management of artistic director Linda Edwards. Since then it has established itself as an excellent pub theatre, with a consistent quality that belies its amateurish backroom setting. Of note are productions of Sondheim's Follies and Assassins as well as City of Angels and I Love You Because, which achieved widespread critical success.

The venue has top class productions - recently showcased in the theatre has been 'Fabrication' by Pier Pablo Pasolini, highly recommended by The Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Independent - and has won two design awards in the Offies (the Off West End Awards) in 2012, the first year it was eligible for the awards.

Rosemary Branch Theatre

There's a frequently changing programme of one-off performances at this independent venue.

2A Shepperton Road, Islington, Islington, London, N1 3DT

Tube: Old Street Station

 
 

An independent, privately-owned, art-friendly freehouse situated across the road from the Grand Union Canal on the borders of Hackney, Islington and Shoreditch. It even has its own theatre upstairs with a frequently changing list of shows from one-off cabaret performances to opera troupes and even a dramatisation of the Bible; it's always worth checking their latest listings for what's going on. It has a tradition in live acts and one previous incarnation was as a renowned music hall where Charlie Chaplin may well have put in a performance. If you're lucky you may even spot a real live celebrity here - comedian Paul Whitehouse used the pub for his BBC series 'Happiness'. Regular quiz nights in the pub downstairs provide enough reason to get a group of friends together and pit your wits against your neighbours.

Theatre 503

A custom-built theatre above The Latchmere Pub.

503 Battersea Park Road, London, SW11 3BW

Tube: Clapham Common Station

 
 

Originally created by the team behind the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill, the 503 is a well-designed theatre nestled above the busy Latchmere pub on Battersea Park Road. In 1982, the Gate Theatre expanded to include this custom-built studio theatre above The Latchmere Pub, on the south side of Battersea Bridge Road. Changing its name from the Grace Theatre to Theatre503 in 2002, it was relaunched as a home for new writing and hosted plays by the likes of Dennis Kelly, Phil Porter, Duncan Macmillan and Rachael Wagstaff. It went on to win the Peter Brook Empty Space Award, was nominated for a Time Out Live Award in 2006. More recently it pulled off "an extraordinary coup" (The Telegraph) with its production of The Mountaintop by Katori Hall which transferred to the West End where it won the Olivier Award for Best New play. The Broadway version stars Samuel L Jackson and Halle Berry. Regular comedy nights, fundraisers and free performances mix with the ambitious program of new work to make Theatre503 so much more significant than a fringe venue housed above a scruffy pub in Battersea.

The Union Theatre

This quirky fringe venue is situated under the arches of a railway bridge close to the Tate Modern.

229 Union Street, London, SE1 0LR

Tube: Southwark Station

 
 

The Union Theatre was set up by actor/producer Sacha Regan in 1998 in an old paper warehouse and with the help of a Prince's Youth Business Trust loan. She was later joined by actor and director Ben De Wynter and stage/production manager Steve Miller who make up the creative team. The theatre is a quirky fringe venue, situated under the arches of a railway bridge and close to the Tate Modern and Jerwood Space art gallery. It also has its own street side cafe - open all day - serving coffees, pastries and Brick Lane bagels.

 
 
 

Royal Vauxhall Tavern

With a busy midweek programme this tavern is the spiritual heart of Vauxhall's gay village.

372 Kennington Lane, Kennington, London, SE11 5HY

Tube: Vauxhall Station

 
 

The Royal Vauxhall Tavern has been a gay venue since the Second World War, surviving both oppression and the great mainstreaming of Gay culture that saw it lose its biggest stars (including Lily Savage) to television. It's the spiritual heart of Vauxhall's gay village, and a busy midweek programme packs it out every night for bingo, comedy, music or drag acts. On weekends, queues stretch all the way round the block for Duckie, the drag cabaret collective who've performed their cabaret/comedy/experimental theatre show everywhere from the Barbican to New York. Straights are very welcome, but the more delicate should be aware that there is a lot of audience participation.
