The Union TheatreThe 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.
