The Playground Theatre In the Ladbroke Grove area of west London, just a ten-minute walk from Latimer Road tube station, The Playground Theatre is a novel use for an old bus depot. Having won the Samuel Beckett award for innovative theatre, the Playground Theatre has a long history supporting artists working in theatre but this is the first time they've had their own bricks and mortar theatre. Officially open in autumn 2017, the theatre is headed up by Anthony Biggs, previously at Jermyn Street Theatre, who as co-artistic director works with the theatre's founder, actor and producer Peter Tate. Designed by Jonathan Mizzi Studio, the theatre has room for 150 to 200, a flexible stage, full lighting rig, state of the art sound system and two dressing rooms. The theatre also includes a sumptuous front of house area with a box office and a cafe bar serving throughout the day.
