Designed by Blow and Billerey in 1907 after the original theatre was destroyed. the playhouse theatre has a capacity od 800 and is Air Conditioned with disables access.

Originally called the Avenue, this venue earned its place in theatrical history by premiering Arms And The Man, Shaw's first success as a playwright. During the 1950s the BBC took over and, for the next 25 years, used the theatre to broadcast a variety of entertainment. Following a period of decline, the novelist Jeffrey Archer bought The Playhouse in 1988 and joined forces with Sir Peter Hall to bring the theatre back to life with several highly rated productions including such classics as William's The Rose Tattoo, Twelfth Night and Moliere's Tartuffe.
