Theatre503 are one of the coolest and most engaging new writing venues in London - always with a fantastic new play or an opportunity for creatives to get involved, their commitment to presenting 'fearless new writing' has led them down some strange, yet hugely enjoyable by-roads.
Pop down for one of their award-winning shows (or even better, to one of their Rapid Write Response new writing nights) and see some of the hottest young talent out there - and the pub downstairs is nice too, expensive yet great food and the wine bottle's thrown in if you buy two glasses before 8 - ideal for the theatre...
I have masses of respect for Theatre5O3. Its mainly showcasing new writing, and really bold writing at that! Last night I saw 'The Stuff of Life' which was actaully a revival from a scottish play from the 90's...but first time its been performed in years. It was great! Really gritty and powerful. The last play I saw at 503, was also really gritty 'Meat' Its a theatre above a pub and just everything about being here is great!!
I came here a few weeks ago for a show called Madagascar. This is a very interesting venue as it is located above a pub. In fact, you have to walk through the pub and up a flight of stairs to get to it. The performance space is quite large considering its in a pub. There is stadium style seating and a small stage in the front. The show wasn't really what I was expecting but there was some good acting in it. If you're looking for an independent theatre experience, I would recommend Theatre 503.
