Arcola Theatre


Situated slap bang in the middle of east London's vibrant Turkish community in Dalston, the Arcola Theatre has been blessed with an exciting, challenging and varied programme since it first opened in 2000. Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen (who also founded the Southwark Playhouse) and Executive Producer Leyla Nazli have built the space up to become one of the most trusted off-West End theatres in London. It moved from Arcola street to Ashwin street in 2011 to take over a former paint manufacturing workshop and it was there that the theate's aim to reduce their carbon emissions really took focus. The theatre has staged new plays and revivals by the likes of  Rebecca Lenkiewicz, Max Stafford-Clark, Frank McGuinness, Timberlake Wertenbaker and Ariel Dorfman.
