Much as we love our West End classics, theatre in London couldn’t survive without new writing. New writing theatre allows London’s theatre scene to evolve, to explore new ideas, to support new voices, and to develop fantastic new pieces of theatre that may eventually become classics themselves. But this wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the venues that make a point of funding brand new productions, providing a space for them to be staged, and introducing new writing to the public.
National Theatre new writing brings ambitious new productions to the stage. Soho Theatre new writing, Royal Court Theatre new writing and Theatre 503 new writing nurtures talent and offers a platform for brand new creations that may not otherwise exist. And there are so many more fantastic venues in London that bring new writing to the public and champion writers of all backgrounds, helping to keep London’s theatre scene compelling, diverse, and alive.
Sure, you could go see your favourite West End show for the fourth time. But the best thing about new writing theatre is not knowing what to expect. You might unearth an emerging talent years before everyone is talking about them or witness the next big thing before it travels the world.

Crackling with potential and energy, these productions will be influenced – if not inspired – by the world we are all living in. You’ll always walk out of the theatre deep in either thought or conversation, because no matter what it is you’ve seen, it’ll be worth talking about.
