About Seven Dials Playhouse

Seven Dials Playhouse is the West End’s home for the development of professional theatre and artists. A 100-seater venue, Seven Dials Playhouse presents a year-round programme of world-class quality theatre consisting of contemporary text-based plays and musicals, as well as an Associated Programme of events which respond directly to the themes of each production.

With a focus on World/European/UK/London premieres, revivals and adaptations, Seven Dials Playhouse creates opportunities for people to collaborate on bold, creative and high-quality work while providing journeys of enlightenment and entertainment for artists and audiences alike.

Seven Dials Playhouse is a rebrand of The Actors Centre, following an extensive overhaul of its programming structure and business model. Opening up the organisation to appeal to the entire creative industry will mark the theatre as a truly inclusive and open organisation. Seven Dials Playhouse is a relevant, dynamic and exciting organisation that responds to what the industry needs today.
