In 2000, Arcola Theatre was born. 20 years, one new building and countless shows later, we’re a little bit older, a little bit wiser – but no less committed to the core values that make us who we are.

In our 20th Anniversary season we’re welcoming back familiar faces to our stages: some of the writers, directors and actors that we have supported, and who have supported us in return. But we’re also looking forward to the next 20 years with a programme of fresh, innovative, international work. We can’t wait to share it with you.

Arcola is 20. Join the party.
