Omnibus Theatre is a multi-award-winning independent theatre in Clapham, South London. The heart of our ambitious programme, inspired by our building’s literary heritage, lies in both classics re-imagined and contemporary storytelling. We provide a platform for new writing and interdisciplinary work, aiming to give voice to the underrepresented and challenge perceptions. We believe in affordable tickets and theatre for all.
Since opening in 2013 notable in-house productions include Woyzeck (2013), Macbeth (2014), Colour (2015), Mule (2016), Spring Offensive (2017), Zeraffa Giraffa (2017), Queens of Sheba (2019) and The Little Prince (2019). Omnibus Theatre is led by Artistic Director Marie McCarthy. We are a registered charity and receive no core funding.
Patrons include Dame Judi Dench, Sir Michael Gambon, Lord Michael Cashman, Matthew Warchus, Sir Richard Eyre and Maggi Hambling.
Our venue is home to our Theatre (90-110 seats) and the Studio Upstairs (80 seats), a café/bar and two performance and rehearsal spaces. To find out more about How We Programme click here. To see What’s On click here.
