This West London theatre is renowned for encouraging new writing. Its success since 1972 is down to strong plays from the likes of Jonathan Harvey, Conor McPherson, Stephen Poliakoff and Mark Ravenhill. It also has an excellent cafe and bar.
A limited number of £10 tickets are available on the morning of each performance. The Shepherd's Bush Comedy Festival is held here in summer, and in 2019 and 2021 the theatre is hosting the three-day, biennial Shubbak Festival, London’s largest festival of contemporary Arab culture.
