The Lion and Unicorn

  • About
    "The Giant Olive Theatre Company looks after the bill at this intimate pub theatre with Founder and artistic director George Sallis at the helm. The emphasis is on new work and in-house productions - in fact, The Giant Olive is so keen to cultivate talent, it runs theatre workshops (the cutely named Little Olives) for children as young as six. There are also classes for adults and community projects for its Kentish Town locals." Lion and Unicorn Theatre review in TimeOut

    New theatre company Giant Olive has taken up residency at North London fringe venue, the Lion and Unicorn Theatre.


    A grand Victorian pub on the corner of an imposing street in Kentish Town would naturally incline you to imagine gastropub resides within.

    Giant Olive also aims to stage contemporary plays, in the hope that the Lion & Unicorn will act as a springboard for writers, performers and directors.
