Park Theatre is a neighbourhood theatre with a global ambition.

Park Theatre is the brainchild of Artistic Director, Jez Bond, and Creative Director, Melli Marie, who – following a six year London-wide search for a building – discovered a vacant office block next to Finsbury Park station in 2010.

Garnering support from the theatre community at large – including luminaries such as Ian McKellen and Alan Rickman, the press and, importantly, local residents – they set out to raise the necessary funds to convert the tired concrete building into a thriving new theatre and beacon for the community. At a cost of just £2.6 million, the building, designed by David Hughes Architects, opened in May 2013 to rave reviews from the critics.

Highlights of the opening season included the UK premiere of These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich with a superb cast which included Honeysuckle Weeks and Charity Wakefield and the world premiere of Oliver Cotton’s Daytona, starring Maureen Lipman – which went on a UK tour.

Vision

Park Theatre is a neighbourhood theatre with a global ambition.

Mission

With a mixture of new writing and modern revivals, we deliver world class theatre, collaborating with the finest existing and emerging talent on stage and behind the scenes. We tell accessible, real-to-life stories, whose content resonates and reflects the world around us and the neighbourhoods close by. We produce both in-house and in partnership with the most excellent existing and emerging producers, for whom we endeavour to provide an unparalleled level of support.

With a welcoming and nurturing environment we want Park Theatre to be exemplary in its accessibility to its diverse community and beyond – and through affordable ticket pricing and outreach programmes we aim to engage those with little or no experience of theatre.
