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.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
If the early days of Nicholas Hytner’s Bridge Theatre haven’t really been on a par with his National Theatre peak, then the clear highlight to date was his thrilling, immersive production of ‘Julius Caesar’, which showed he still knows his way around...Shakespeare Monday June 3 2019 - Saturday August 31 2019
