A small room with an international reputation, the Almeida began life as a literary and scientific society - complete with library, lecture theatre and laboratory. From the very beginning, our building existed to investigate the world.
Today, we make bold new work that asks big questions: of plays, of theatre and how we live.
We bring together the most exciting artists to take risks; to provoke, inspire and surprise our audiences; to interrogate the present, dig up the past and imagine the future.
Whether new work or reinvigorated classic, whether in our theatre, on the road or online, the Almeida makes work to excite and entertain with extraordinary live art, every day.
