Since it was founded in 1979 the Gate, one of London's smallest but best off-West End theatres, has tended to programme foreign drama. Artistic director Christopher Haydon has made his own stamp on the venue, moving away from the European sensibilities of previous artistic directors Natalie Abrahami and Carrie Cracknell, and has created a particularly strong link with drama from the US.
The Gate's tiny foyer is an exceptionally cramped thing with no room for a bar. But the theatre is above the Prince Albert pub which boasts a great beer garden, and drinks can br brought up.
Tickets cost £20, with a limited number of £15 discount tickets available.
