A kitsch-free rebel on the outskirts of theatreland, Trafalgar Studios is a modern, minimalist space in the shell of the former Whitehall Theatre. Its two studios tend to present emerging, established and international talent with varied success, from Polly Teale’s inventive ‘Jane Eyre’ to the lacklustre ‘Riflemind’, which, despite being awash with the talent of Andrew Upton, Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Hannah, was a flop.

A few weeks ago I saw 'Wasp' here. 
Two women who used to be friends but whose lives completely changed once they left school. One, a struggling working class woman with kids, the other, a seemingly successful middle-class woman whose struggle is her lack of fertility. As the play unravels, it takes a dark turn and it seems that her infertility isn't her only struggle. A lot happened, it was deep, dark and disturbing with many twists, surprises and even uncomfortable moments. Great performances from the two ladies who, even through such a dark storyline, managed some light humour in there too

saw Ticking the play. It is in the lower ground studio and hence it is a small but intimate setting. You feel right in the action along with the constant smoke and the heat in the cell. The lead was amazing (and if he is familiar it is because he was on the burberry ad!) and really allowed me to get into his mental state of mind before he faced death row. The realism made me wonder if the director and producers really knew about a similar case and had first or second hand experience... 

the venue has a nice bar as well which the actors and actresses do hang out in post show so it is a good place to speak with them too!

Right in the centre of the West End, this theatre puts on some great pieces of theatre if you want an alternative to the musicals.
