London's finest kids' theatre
This light, bright children's theatre has two performance spaces and an increasingly formidable reputation. Current artistic director Purni Morell has reenergised the venue with a boldness rarely associated with this sort of work. She's made astute use of the Unicorn's hefty ACE grant, bringing many 'grown-up' playwrights and directors on board to offer fare for older children that's routinely praised by forward-thinking adult theatre buffs. That's not to say everything there is massively challenging, or that there's nothing on offer for the little 'uns: there's usually plenty, especially during school holidays.
