Greenwich Theatre, London

Greenwich Theatre is an important part of the London theatre scene and a much loved local cultural institution for the people of Greenwich. It has a long and interesting history, having originally been opened over 150 years ago. It has gone through various incarnations such as Crowders Music Hall, the Temple of Varieties and then finally becoming, simply, Greenwich Theatre in 1969. The council had purchased the site with a view to demolishing it, but local support and pressure gave the theatre a new lease of life.

From 1969, the theatre became a showcase for many new dramatic works. Early plays included Chekhov's Three Sisters and Jean Genet's The Maids, featuring Glenda Jackson, Susannah York and Vivien Merchant, with many of the Greenwich cast featured in the subsequent film version. Greenwich Theatre also saw the première of John Mortimer's A Voyage Round My Father and, in 1981, Rupert Everett appeared in the 1981 première of Another Country - another play which successfully transferred to celluloid, having also won accolades in the West End.

Our plays at Greenwich Theatre

In 2009, the theatre returned to in-house producing after a period of 10 years, with the start of its collaboration with Stage on Screen. The first four productions were Doctor Faustus, The School for Scandal, The Duchess of Malfi and Volpone.

Directing the productions was Elizabeth Freestone, whose previous credits include Romeo and Juliet for the Globe Theatre, as well as many plays for the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). An excellent all-round cast also included familiar faces from the RSC, the National and the West End, including many with major TV and film credits to their name.

Dr Faustus

Dr Faustus was performed at Greenwich Theatre in London during October 2009. The story of the man who sold his soul to the devil is Christopher Marlowe’s best known play, and a firm favourite with both theatre lovers and students.

The School for Scandal

The School for Scandal by Richard Brinsley Sheridan was performed at Greenwich Theatre in London during October 2009. The vicious back-biting world of the eighteenth century is not so different from our own, and its themes of lust, seduction and deceit make this a timeless comedy.

The Duchess of Malfi

The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster was performed at Greenwich Theatre in London during March/April 2010. One of the greatest achievements of English drama, this epic revenge tragedy begins with a love story and ends in a bloody nightmare.

Volpone

Volpone by Ben Jonson was performed at Greenwich Theatre in London during March/April 2010. A merciless satire of greed and lust, Volpone is Jonson's most performed play, and is among the finest Jacobean comedies. Premiered at the Globe Theatre in spring 1606, Volpone is still frighteningly relevant today.
