The Gate Theatre has a distinguished reputation that far exceeds its size. It is London’s only producing theatre dedicated to international work. From humble beginnings it has developed a significant renown throughout London, as well as nationally and internationally.
In 1979 the Gate was founded by Lou Stein, over the Prince Albert pub, in Notting Hill Gate. It set about a unique pursuit of the original, of plays and playwrights unknown on British stages, and of artists whose talent deserved to be discovered.
With an average seating capacity of 70, the Gate is small but ambitious. The space has challenged and inspired directors, designers, writers and performers for over 30 years, making it famous for being one of the most flexible and transformable spaces in London. The Gate is a springboard – our aim is to give emerging artists the opportunity to take risks, to excel and to make their mark. We have been home to a variety of both established and emerging artists including Lez Brotherston, Kathy Burke, Dominic Cooke, Wolfgang Goebbel, Sir Peter Hall, Ed Hogg, Richard Hudson, Paterson Joseph, Sarah Kane, Alex Kingston, Jude Law, Nancy Meckler, Katie Mitchell, Sophie Okonedo, Emma Rice, Ian Rickson and Rachel Weisz.
