Southwark Playhouse

Southwark Playhouse's central vision is that of a vibrant theatre in the heart of the London Borough of Southwark, serving the widest possible constituency within the borough and beyond, providing a platform for emerging theatre practitioners and a programme of performance, education work and community drama.

Our primary objectives are

• to produce high quality, cutting edge theatre in both traditional and non-traditional theatre environments

• to offer a fully resourced and wholly integrated education and community programme, providing opportunities for people of all ages in Southwark to engage with the borough's rich heritage and cultural potential

• to support the work of emerging theatre practitioners and companies by providing a well-equipped venue at an affordable cost, with appropriate resources and guidance

• to intertwine the artistic, education and community programmes so that fresh insights and opportunities are offered to broad sectors of users within the Southwark community
