Southwark Playhouse Needs Your Help

Southwark Playhouse has become a home away from home for Belt Up over the last three years.

Since they first invited us in 2009, we have presented a number of shows in their incredible spaces.
The Tartuffe, The Trial, Lorca is Dead, Atrium, Quasimodo and The Boy James have been performed in the Vaults and Main Space and earlier this year our production of Macbeth was produced with the help of Southwark's Press and Marketing team.

Our producer and co-artistic director Jethro has also been made Associate Artist at the Playhouse; offering support and a home to an indepentant artist and developing the relationship between an established and well known venue and an aspiring theatre producer.

There is no theatre or team like Southwark Playhouse anywehere in London. Their ambition and determination rivals that of any major producing house and their commitment to the arts will pave the way for the next generation of theatre companies, writers, directors , producers , actors and audiences.

Southwark Playhouse is invaluable.
