This hugely ambitious, brand new London theatre is a 900-seater space that's been masterminded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr's London Theatre Company. It's got a focus on substantial new writing, and will open four or five plays each year.
Bridge Theatre is a custom built space in, surprise surprise, London Bridge. But its programming looks set to rival Hytner's old stamping ground the National Theatre, just a few miles upstream: big names including Simon Russell Beale, Richard Bean and Lucy Prebble are on board for its first seasons.
