Southwark Playhouse has been given, through a planning obligation, a new theatre at the Elephant & Castle with a lease of 125 years. We plan to open the theatre at the end of this year.
However, it's currently just a concrete shell and we need to raise £3.5m to fit it out. We have raised the majority of this but still have the final 10% of the funds left to raise. The new building will give us a flexible 300 seat theatre, a dedicated youth and community space as well as much improved facilities - and most importantly a secure forever home.
Please consider making a donation towards our new building so we can continue to be an invaluable community resource and support and present the work of the best new and emerging talent.
