“Something remarkable is happening at The Playground Theatre. 
This newest of venues on the London fringe...positively hums with creativity and innovation.”


A vibrant summer-autumn season has been announced for The Playground Theatre which is a multidisciplinary performing arts incubator and one of London’s newest off-West End venues.

The Playground is also co-producing compelling new works at other venues this Autumn, including Value Engineering: Scenes from the Grenfell Inquiry, which sets out to discover why the devastating fire of 14 June 2017 happened after the refurbishment of Grenfell Tower, and who was responsible for the deaths of 72 people. Elsewhere, The Playground presents Damage Control at Riverside Studios, an interactive, sonic sculpture exhibition that explores the language of emergency by artist Josie Spencer.

Peter Tate & Anthony Biggs, joint Artistic Directors of The Playground Theatre said: 
“This season, we are proud to introduce an array of exciting new works that have been uniquely incubated with us — including Well Made @ The Playground, a three-show series of theatre, opera, and contemporary dance, and Ida Rubinstein, the untold story of dance’s forgotten early-20th-century Russian diva.  These shows have all been developed and consciously shaped here at The Playground in partnership with some of our most inspired artists, who we have actively invited to explore new concepts. True to our ethos of embracing the joy of play, we are standing up these evolving works so that we can welcome our audiences into the thick of the creative process — and hopefully share in something unexpected together.”
