Founded in 1980, the Finborough Theatre is an Off-West End theatre located in West Brompton just five minutes from Earls Court Underground Station. Its programme focuses on new British plays, UK premiers of new international works, and musical theatre. Its tiny 50 seat space puts on plays and musicals of an immensely high quality often with world-wide writers and stars of stage and screen. It has the reputation of being one of the best theatres in the world concentrating on thought provoking new writing as well as rediscoveries of neglected works from the 19th and 20th century. The theatre has won numerous awards and launched the careers of umpteen theatre professionals. It has become one of the most loved pub venues by London’s dramatic community. So much so that plays regularly sell out – if you want to see a production here, booking in advance is a must.
