Set to open in 2017, the Bridge Theatre is London’s first large-scale commercial venue to be built outside of the West End. Founded by producing duo Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr, who helmed a series of successful productions at the National Theatre from 2002-2014, the theatre is the flagship home of their new London Theatre Company.

Located at One Tower Bridge, a previous housing development close to London Bridge Station, the theatre is designed by 2014 Stirling Prize winning architects Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins Architects. Set to accommodate a complete Berkeley development, including restaurants, the venue comes from the duo behind the Royal Court Theatre and Liverpool Everyman, as well as the rebuild of the Young Vic and construction of the National’s Temporary Theatre.

The Bridge Theatre is set to host a series of adventurous new writing under the London Theatre Company, with some revivals of past successes to play limited seasons. Hytner and Starr led previous National Theatre success including The History Boys, War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and One Man, Two Guvnors.

With a programme set to include 4 shows a year, the first play of the season will be Richard Bean and Clive Coleman's new comedy Young Marx, starring Rory Kinnear, followed by Julius Caesar, directed in promenade by Nicholas Hytner and starring Ben Whishaw as Brutus and David Morrissey as Mark Anthony. The third show will be new playwright Barney Norris' production Nightfall.
