The Old Red Lion Theatre first opened its doors in 1979 and is now one of London's oldest and most loved Fringe theatre venues.
Our mission is to nurture and present the very best new and emerging theatrical talent. Kathy Burke, Stephen Daldry, Penelope Skinner and Nina Raine- are just a few who had early work presented on our stage and this list grows each year.
In the past few years the Old Red Lion Theatre has transferred work off-Broadway and four times to the West End. Notable hits beyond the Fringe include: the World Premiere of Arthur Miller's first play No Villain (Trafalgar Studios); The Play That Goes Wrong (Trafalgar Studios and No 1 Tour); Mercury Fur (Trafalgar Studios); Kissing Sid James (London and off-Broadway); The Importance of Being Earnest (Old Red Lion Theatre and Theatre Royal Haymarket)
