Finborough TheatreThe Finborough Theatre in Earls Court punches well above its weight, presenting award-winning plays and works by new writers in a small theatre above a pub. Founded in 1980, the Finborough has just 50 seats creating an intimate space for its productions which focus on developing new writing, rediscovering neglected works and presenting the best of the old and new in an eclectic programme. In 2010 artistic director Neil McPherson curated an ambitious festival to mark the theatre's 30th anniversary with 30 new plays from the likes of esteemed playwrights Mike Bartlett, Mark Ravenhill and Laura Wade. The Finborough has also won the Dan Crawford Pub Theatre Award not once but twice - in 2005 and again in 2008 - as well as being named The Most Welcoming Theatre and the Best Theatre Bar in South West London in the Off West End Awards in 2012.
