Gate

  • About
    The Gate is London's only theatre dedicated to producing international work. With an average seating capacity of 70, the Gate is small but ambitious - Stephen Daldry made his mark as Artistic Director of the Gate, bringing casts as large as 20 to our tiny auditorium. In August 2004, Thea Sharrock joined the Gate as the new Artistic Director.

    "One of the thrills of a Gate production is the endless inventiveness applied to a tiny space: you never know what will greet you as you walk through the door." - The Metro

    Established in 1979, the Gate was one of the first theatres to produce and collaborate with Eastern European theatre practitioners and opened the way for a rapid proliferation of international work on London’s stages. Recent productions have ranged from the UK premiere of Tshepang, a haunting piece of South African storytelling hailed by John Peter of the Sunday Times as having “the earthly vigour of Barney Simon’s Market Theatre and visionary realistic style of Peter Brook”, to Daniel Kramer’s reinvention of Büchner’s Woyzeck. Tejas Verdes, directed by Thea Sharrock and designed by Dick Bird, sold out and extended, prompting one of the longest runs in Gate history.

    The Gate’s legacy is to give emerging artists the opportunity to take risks, to excel and to make their mark. Working with the Jerwood Charity, we continue to foster young designers and push the limits of theatre design. Many talented directors, designers and actors have been nurtured by the Gate at a crucial stage in their careers, among them Katie Mitchell, Ian MacNeil and Sophie Okonedo.

    As an artistically led theatre, we have never let financial limitations deter us from our artistic ambitions. Our theatre’s survival has long depended on the support of individuals and the dedication of artists. In April 2003, following a groundbreaking agreement with Arts Council England and British Equity, we were able to pay actors and stage managers a small but regular wage for the first time in twenty five years. This is the beginning of the future for the Gate. We hope you join us at this exhilarating point in our history.
