The Kiln Theatre (formerly the Tricycle Theatre) is located in Kilburn, in the London Borough of Brent. A vibrant one-stop-shop for culture in north London, it packs a lot into its medium-sized frame: bar, kitchen, cinema, gallery and of course a 292-seat theatre. Since opening in 1980, it has produced critically acclaimed plays alongside an eclectic programme of new writing. The theatre has also established a unique reputation for presenting plays that reflect the cultural diversity of its community, in particular by black, Irish, Jewish, Asian and South African writers, as well as for responding to contemporary issues and events with its ground-breaking ‘tribunal plays’ and political work. The Kiln is open seven days a week and is just a couple of minutes from Kilburn tube station.
