Trafalgar Studio One

Now showing at the Trafalgar Studio One



Following an acclaimed, sold-out run at the Bush Theatre, Arinzé Kene’s ‘big popular hit’ (Evening Standard) Misty transfers to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios for a strictly limited season.

In a playful, profound and unique take on modern life, Misty is a powerful lyrical journey through the heart and soul of inner-city London.  Accompanied by a pulsating original score, Arinzé (Girl from the North Country, Lion King, One Night in Miami) grapples with everything from night bus arguments to life as an artist loaded with others’ expectations.

Omar Elerian (NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) directs this epic, heartfelt and hugely entertaining new play from one of Britain’s most exciting writers.

Nine Night

Nine Night

Family, food, music and mourning.

Gloria is gravely sick. When her time comes, the celebration begins; the traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake. But for Gloria’s children and grandchildren, marking her death with a party that lasts over a week is a test. Nine nights of music, food, sharing stories – and an endless parade of mourners.

Designed by Edward Stone. This Theatre opened on 29th September 1930 with "The Way to treat a Woman"by Walter Hackett.

Formerly the Whitehall Theatre, Trafalgar Studios is two new theatre studios under one roof in the heart of the London's West End. Opening with the RSC's production of Othello at the end of May, the larger space has approximately 380 seats. Othello was followed by the Watermill Theatre's acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd.

Architects Tim Foster and John Muir have created two new intimate and dynamic theatre spaces that will inject a new energy and excitement into the venue and into the West End allowing The Ambassador Theatre Group to host a much wider range of entertainment than has previously been possible in commercial theatre.

The Whitehall theatre opened in 1930 with a transfer of The Way to Treat a Woman by Walter Hackett (also the theatre's licensee). He presented several more highly successful plays of his own until leaving in 1934, and the theatre continued to build its reputation for popular modern comedies throughout the 1930s. During the war this tried and tested formula was rejected in favour of revue shows, which were all the rage elsewhere in London's West End. In 1942, The Whitehall Follies was launched, featuring a non-stop performance by Phyllis Dixey - audiences flocked in, mostly due to the fact that the celebrated Miss Dixey was famous for being the first stripper in the West End!
