Our History

A venue that belongs to the future, not to the past.

The Independent

From New Compton Street to a basement at Soho Poly to the first ever purpose built theatre for new writing, Soho Theatre Company has been making its mark on the streets of London for over 40 years.

Nestled a few doors down from Karl Marx’s 1850s crash pad, just up from the infamous Colony Room, (and if you believe Wikipedia) at the very address that Mozart played in 1764, 21 Dean Street has been Soho Theatre’s home for 11 years.

Along with Soho Theatre Downstairs, a new Comedy & Cabaret space, a dedicated space for emerging artists, a better bar, and its first Olivier Award, Soho Theatre offers a place for audiences and artists to come together. We’ve been creating our own history by looking to the future.
