After its original home - a 50 seater function room above The Stag pub in Victora - was rudely demolished in 2012, Above the Stag was forced to up sticks and become a wandering theatre as it searched for a new home. Now it is based in a renovated railway arch in Vauxhall. While the in-house ATS Theatre Company share a love of musicals, they tend to be more of the adult variety complete with oodles of drag. Straight plays are staged here too, all under the competent guidance of artistic director Peter Bull.
The theatre, opened in 2013 under a refurbished railway bridge in Vauxhall, features a fully-stocked bar and lounge area.

Have seen two productions here - 'Joe Orton - The Musical' and, more recently, 'The Sins of Jack Saul'. Both were way better than anything you will see at any West End tourist-trap and the actors are close enough to touch. Theatre at its most immediate and real. Can't recommend highly enough.
