Southwark Playhouse

Elephant & Castle

After a hugely successful 2012, this fringe powerhouse was forced to quit its home underneath London Bridge due to ongoing redevelopment work at the station. Though Southwark Playhouse has been promised a spot in the revamped London Bridge, it moves – for now – to this warehouse near Elephant & Castle. With a 240-seat main house and a 120-seat studio, it's almost twice as big as the old venue and almost certainly the largest London theatre that could be described as 'fringe'. Previous changes of venue has spelled quite drastic shifts in the Playhouse's programming, but with artistic director Chris Smyrnios remaining at the helm, one suspects the focus of eclectic main house and musicals-orientated studio to remain.

we are here for a short visit and are being driven nuts by your multiple addresses. you must make it clear that you have moved so people wanting to see the Tom Paine play from my country can find their way to you

I can't wait for these guys to get back to London Bridge, as they do some great intimate, thought-provoking and sometimes challenging pieces. One of the best fringe theatres in London, in an atmospheric venue in the arches.
