Unicorn Theatre

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.

Justin Audibert will take over as artistic director in summer 2018.

The children were enraptured by this wonderful prodction.Set in India with fabulous music by Arun Ghosh amazing dancing and comic fighting.My children were dancing in the streets afterwards.Unicorn has a hit on it,s hands.

As well as great shows for kids I am now coming once or twice each year to see shows which speak very much in intelligent ways to the adult audience


A lovely, thoughtful theatre with a programme that's adventurous, considering that it's for children.
