Company Overview 
This famous award winning producing theatre, located in the heart of London’s East End on the edge of the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, prides itself on creating world class work that reflects the concerns, hopes and dreams of its community.
 
Description
Theatre Royal Stratford East is a prolific developer of new work, attracting artists and audiences often not represented in many other venues.

New Writing
Theatre Royal Stratford East has a strong tradition of developing new plays and musicals, and encouraging new voices for the stage. From Shelagh Delaney’s A Taste of Honey, Theatre Workshop and Joan Littlewood's Oh, What a Lovely War!, Five Guys Named Moe, Ken Hill’s The Invisible Man, Paul Sirett and Paul Joseph’s The Big Life, Tanika Gupta’s Gladiator Games, Perry Henzell’s The Harder They Come to recent productions of Martina Cole’s Two Women, adapted by Patrick Prior and Rikki Beadle Blair’s Shalom Baby.

Musical Theatre 
An important aspect of its work is the development of new musical theatre. The Theatre’s vision is to break new ground with musicals that bring contemporary and urban music into the mainstream of British theatre. This has led to the production of a broad spectrum of acclaimed sell-out musicals with its work transferring nationally and internationally. These include Baiju Bawra, Da Boyz, The Big Life, The Harder They Come, The Blacks, Come Dancing, Takeaway, Clockwork Orange, Reasons to be Cheerful with Graeae Theatre Company and New Wolsey Theatre, Britain’s Got Bhangra with Rifco Arts & Warwick Arts Centre and the Olivier Award winning Pied Piper with Boy Blue Ents.

Young People's Work
We work with over 3,500 young people a year here at Theatre Royal Stratford East. We provide a range of opportunities for young people to get involved – all affordable, accessible and flexible. Each young person has a different journey with us. They may start with school work experience, join a performance project or become a volunteer; whatever suits their needs and ambitions.

This famous producing theatre, located in the heart of London’s East End on the edge of the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, prides itself on creating world class work that reflects the concerns, hopes and dreams of its community.

Through a continuous loop it inspires and is inspired by its vibrant, young and diverse audience.

Three of us attended the opening night of O What a Lovely War, we had a fantastic night - my wife and her cousin were born locally, we loved the atmosphere created to make our experience so fantastic, the interaction between the actors and the audience made the show for us all, many thanks its such a lovely intimate space, bearing all the hallmarks of a great little theatre.

If you dont want to go all the way to central london and you live around east london, well this is the place to watch current theatres and there is a lovely carribean buffet resturant just opposite it, plus a cinema.

Great theatre - full of character and a great bar and food space. Easy to get to from the tube/train. Comfortable and really good racked seating.

I remember going in there in (June 2008) and the "manager" a tall mixed race guy in the the Theatre Royal Bar was a DISGUSTING pervert. He did'nt know us and went straight up to us and offered us free drinks so he could hit on us and invite us back to his flat which was across the road, and my friend reported that he pinched her bottom and he did the same to another group of girls and then another was very forward and sleazy towards another girl who was there alone. He seemed to offer free drinks to every female in the bar so he could target them. I personally found him to be very offensive to women and consequently I lived in the area but due to not wanting to run into this pervert I did not attend that bar again in my life. Thank You.x

Response from the owner - a year ago
Thank you for taking the time to review the Theatre Royal Stratford East. We appreciate all feedback we get and take comments such as this very seriously. As the incident your review is based upon is from five years ago, it's hard for us to effectively respond or efficiently deal with your complaint. The manager in question is no longer working with the Theatre Royal Stratford East. We hope that you will come back to experience the theatre and the bar. - Theatre Royal Stratford East

The food is good but over priced with mean portions. The service is terrible and there is little atmosphere, these days. This place used to be fantastic but recent changes have killed it.

The centre of Stratford's cultural scene, the Theatre Royal Stratford East has been putting on productions continuously since the 1800s. Today the shows are a multi-cultural mix of serious plays, musicals and of course the legendary annual panto. Prices are about equal with a night out at the cinema, which is a rarity for an established London theatre. A great place for an evening's entertainment, whatever your tastes.
