The Almeida Theatre

The Almeida Theatre exists to make brave new work that asks big questions: of plays, of theatre, and of the world around us. That work can take the form of radical reinventions of classic plays, timely revivals, or exciting new writing. The theatre, a refurbished Grade II listed building in the heart of Islington, London possesses a very particular quality that arguably makes it unique in the ecology of London theatre, combining a sense of the epic within a liberatingly intimate setting.

The Almeida presents up to six productions each year, extending its reach for its award-winning work through transfers to the West End and Broadway, regional UK tours, as well as broadcasts on television, online and at the cinema. In 2016 and 2018 the Almeida was named The Stage newspaper’s London Theatre of the Year – the only theatre to receive the accolade twice. The theatre undertakes a regular programme of captioned and audio described performances to support those with access requirements. Almeida Participation, a full–time programme of work with schools, young people and the local community, is also an integral element of the theatre’s activities.
