East London’s Isle of Dogs happily boasts The Space as its community arts hub. Making use of a former, derelict church, the fully restored centre is a homely sort of venue, seating for shows often arranged lounge-style, with tables facing the stage. The bill is an ever-revolving mix of music, theatre, comedy and dance, with an emphasis on presenting fresh work featuring themes that reach out to the local community.

Excellent venue. The current productions are great. BJF is wonderful dark melodrama with a mostly excellent cast - the exception perhaps being one monotone actress - but there are limitations in any fringe event. SK very funny, with marvellously charismatic cast.


A really great venue. Everything I've seen there has been of a really high standard and the bar / restaurant is a great place to have a drink and bit to eat even if you're not seeing anything. Much easier to get to than it appears on the map too!


Baby Jesus Freak -- gripping and thought-provoking dark comedy, with very good acting in a minimalist production.... the kind of play you're still talking about several weeks later. If I were directing I would have jettisoned the lightweight "Stage Kiss" and persuaded the writer to expand "Baby Jesus Freak" into a full-length play, so as to give the excellent cast more time and space to develop the crucial moments which articulate the forward momentum of the plot....


Brilliant double bill of new writing, funky little venue, would def recommend - great bar/resto!


Took my teenage kids to see this double bill and was pleasantly surprised at how much they loved it. Lots to think and talk about with Baby Jesus Freak, and we all laughed out loud at Stage Kiss which was good fun.


Brilliant venue, great atmosphere, eclectic mix of events ... what more could one ask?


Dark, gritty drama and hilarious comedy...what more could you ask for?

Thoroughly enjoyable evening with some superb performances and exciting writing. Well worth the trek out of town.
