Oval House Theatre has made its name supporting experimental theatre companies and staging work by and about excluded communities. It’s been doing both very well since the 1960s and continues to nurture work through local community projects, theatre clubs, workshops and arts education for young people at risk. Past successes include Michael Twait’s ‘Confessions of a Dancewhore’, while productions range from straight theatre and spoken word to dance and comedy pieces.

A lovely little theater opposite the Oval Cricket Ground which has an outdoor seating area for when its mega hot. I went recently to see the play Diary of a Hounslow Girl.  We had a few drinks in the bar beforehand which was very pleasant and the theater itself is quite small and tiered, so I would recommend getting there on the early side as it is first come first served for seats.

If wanting food beforehand I would grab something in Vauxhall as there's not a lot around the area once you're at the venue.
