Arcola Theatre is one of London’s leading off-West End theatres.
Locally engaged and internationally minded, Arcola stages a diverse programme of plays, operas and musicals. World-class productions from major artists appear alongside cutting-edge work from the most exciting emerging companies.
Arcola delivers one of London’s most extensive community engagement programmes, creating over 5000 opportunities every year. By providing research and development space to diverse artists, Arcola champions theatre that’s more engaging and representative. Its pioneering environmental initiatives are internationally renowned, and aim to make Arcola the world’s first carbon-neutral theatre.
Each year Arcola presents around 60 productions and events. Half are new plays and involve new talent and young companies. In 2013/14, a third were by ethnically diverse artists and two-thirds had women at the helm as writers, directors and producers. Arcola provides 28 weeks of free rehearsal, showcasing and office space to emerging ethnically diverse artists. Over 2,500 students attend our performances.
