Southwark PlayhouseThe Southwark Playhouse, one of London's best fringe theatres, has found a temporary home for five years at 77-85 Newington Causeway, a huge warehouse in the heart of Southwark, a five minute walk from Borough Tube and Elephant and Castle Tube stations. The theatre returns to its original London Bridge Station location in 2018 but in the meantime the new space gives the theatre 2,000 more square feet to play with including a 240-capacity Main House, a 120 seat Studio Space and - for the first time - its own bar and cafe. The theatre was founded in 1993 and has a reputation for presenting an eclectic mix of classics and works from emerging writers. Past performances have included everything from works by Shakespeare and The Canterbury Tales to puppetry and multimedia. Productions standards are high and the theatre has been nominated for the prestigious Peter Brook / Empty Space Award three times. They are also very much involved in the local community, providing a busy programme of education and workshops.
