Above The Stag Theatre nearing completion
Work on this exciting new venue is well advanced and due for completion early next month.
Located in two interconnecting railway arches, the theatre will form a part of the wider retail and leisure regeneration focused around Vauxhall station in south London.
Our design will provide a new home for the local award-winning Above The Stag LGBT+ theatre company, comprising a 110-seat main auditorium, a 60-seat studio theatre, a dance/rehearsal space, exhibition facilities and a large café-bar, along with all the necessary back of house areas.
The polished concrete screed, galvanised steel fittings and corrugated grey cladding to the arches, combine with areas of exposed brickwork to create a retro industrial aesthetic that will be further enhanced by an eclectic selection of furniture and a 9m long bar clad in reclaimed scaffolding boards.
The theatre will open on 1st June 2018 with a new 25th anniversary production of Jonathan Harvey’s landmark play Beautiful Thing, first staged in 1993 at the Bush Theatre.
