From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Union Theatre is a small fringe theatre situated in the borough of Southwark in London. It was established in 1998 by Sasha Regan who took the initiative to convert a disused paper warehouse near Southwark station into a functioning theatre[1]. Set beneath railway arches, it is one of the more distinctive theatrical spaces in London.

In recent times, the Union has acquired a reputation for staging high-quality musicals in its tiny studio space. Some of its acclaimed productions include Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd[2], Adler and Ross' The Pajama Game, Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado (an all-male version)[3] and HMS Pinafore [4]. As a result of its string of successes, the Union won the accolade of Best Up-and-Coming Theatre in the 2008 Empty Space Peter Brook Awards[5]. It's highly acclaimed recent production of 'A Man of No Importance' by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens with book by Terrence McNally will transfer to the West End in February 2010 playing at The Arts Theatre Leicester Square from 9th - 27th Feb.

The theatre also has an all-day cafe and a bar.
