The Almeida Theatre is a North London powerhouse, famous for its ambitious aims to launch the next generation of British artists onto the world stage.

A small, intimate room with an international reputation, and the source of many an acclaimed West End transfer, the Almeida Theatre began life as a literary and scientific society in the London Borough of Islington, constructed in 1837 and complete with library, lecture theatre and laboratory through which to investigate the world.

The building later became derelict, and opened as a theatre in 1980, seating up to 325 in its small studio venue. Taking its name from the street on which it is located, just off Upper Street,  the Almeida aims to make brave new work that asks big questions: of plays, of theatre and of the world around us.
