About the Almeida Theatre
Islington's Almeida Theatre is an intimate space that regularly attracts high calibre talent, including world-renowned actors and visionary directors. Dating back to 1837, the venue first became a theatre in 1980, after a campaign led by acclaimed director Pierre Audi, who later became the Almeida’s first Artistic Director. It is now counted alongside the Bridge Theatre and Royal Court Theatre as one of the city's most exciting venues outside of the West End.
A refurbishment took place in the early 2000s, which retained the building's original 19th-century features but combined them with the comfort of modern amenities. A curved back wall allows for a vast, flexible stage and for audiences to feel close to the action.
Acclaimed director Rupert Goold is currently at the helm of the Almeida's creative output, which includes radical re-imaginings of classic plays alongside new work by major playwrights, including James Graham, Mike Bartlett, Jez Butterworth and Caryl Churchill. A number of the theatre's recent productions have appeared in the West End, including Hamlet starring Andrew Scott, Mary Stuart, and Summer and Smoke.
