A charity and social enterprise – our mission is to produce new work, discover and nurture new writers and artists, and target and develop new audiences.

You’ll find us bang in the heart of London with our year round festival-like programme, at festivals or through our national and international touring. And in early 2018 we’ll launch our online service with Soho Theatre On Demand.

We produce and co-produce new plays, work with associate artists and present the best new emerging theatre companies. We present the early work of countless UK artists (many who become industry giants). And we are the go to for many international artists’ London debuts. We have artists on attachment and under commission (Soho Six). Plus we have a thriving Young Company of writers, theatre makers and comedy groups.

We have two Awards: our prestigious biennial writing competition the Verity Bargate Award, and the Tony Craze Award for our Writers’ Labs participants. We read and see hundreds of shows a year and we work in local boroughs.

From a couple of staff way back when to currently around 100, we’re growing. With an exciting vision for the next four years, we’ve a lot going on both on and off our stages.

Welcome to Soho Theatre.
