White Bear Theatre


The White Bear Theatre is an award-winning, off-West End venue, only 2 minutes walk from Kennington Underground and just 4 stops from Leicester Square (on the Northern Line).

The White Bear was founded by Michael Kingsbury in 1988 and focuses on new writing and lost classics. It exists to nurture talent, extend possibilities and offer a space where risks can be taken. People who have cut their teeth at The White Bear include: Joe Penhall, Emily Watson, Tamzin Outhwaite, Kwame Kwei Armah, Vicky Featherstone, Torben Betts, and Lucinda Coxon. The White Bear has also developed and hosted work by a new generation of theatre makers including this year's Verity Bargate winner Vicky Jones, Blanche McIntyre, The Ugly Sisters, and Simon Evans.

The White Bear has recently undergone extensive upgrades including full airconditioning of the theatre.
