Greenwich Theatre is a 400 seated venue located in the heart of Greenwich, but the company is far more than the building. Our programme of work has seen us work with emerging companies to co-produce and house theatre at a range of national and international venues. Read More+
In her Guardian blog, Lyn Gardner wrote “The artists of tomorrow are not made through funding an elite, but by funding at the bottom of the pyramid… We need to work at the roots. If we don't, we will end up with the top of the pyramid and nothing beneath.”
At Greenwich Theatre we work to support just that – the grassroots of new theatre creation. Here, we support emerging theatre companies in their development, as producers, as theatre. Some companies use Greenwich Theatre as a home, using the office, rehearsal space, performance space; some companies use us as an artistic sounding board and an outside eye in rehearsal; some use us as an industry mentor, taking guidance on everything from prop-buying to touring strategy.
Ultimately, theatre holds something for everyone, and Greenwich Theatre is committed to promoting equality of opportunity across all aspects of its operation. This applies to audiences, performers, practitioners, young participants and staff alike.
