Theatre503 is the home of groundbreaking plays. We produce work that is game-changing, relevant, surprising, mischievous, visually thrilling and theatrical. We create this work for you, our audience, a place where you can reflect on your place in the world with others doing the same.
Paul Robinson is Artistic Director. We have been a flagship fringe venue for over thirty years and we specialise in new writing which we hope will thrill our loyal audience. We are proud to be one of London’s few destinations for high quality new writing. We also offer more opportunities to new writers than any theatre in the country.
In a more recent move we have introduced more established writers to the programme. Twice a year we revive in only its second production a groundbreaking but overlooked play from the 1980s or 90s. This is called ‘Second Look’. The thought here is that we establish the future by igniting the past and reflect on where we are by seeing where we’ve been. We have also asked today’s most esteemed living playwrights to present their own stars of the future in another new strand of work called ‘Playwright Presents’. The aim is for Theatre503 to be seen as a curator of new writing for the last thirty years, documenting a modern world through drama.
