Theatre 503Originally 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.
