Perform With Us
We strive to present a rich and varied programme of quality work at the Pleasance Islington, with a particular emphasis on the new and untried.
We have two theatres at Pleasance Islington: the Main House seating 288 and a studio venue, the StageSpace, seating 54. Details of both spaces (including hire fees) can be found in the Our Spaces section of the website.
In the Main House we present a varied programme of quality new writing and new work, children's theatre and the best in touring productions - not to mention regular performances by some of the biggest names in comedy! Companies such as Curious Directive, Flabbergast Theatre, Writer's Avenue, Tucked In, Kipper Tie Theatre and performers such as Michael McIntyre, Micky Flanagan and Mark Thomas have all performed with us in the 2012/2013 season.
The StageSpace was set up with the aim of providing an affordable platform for the talent of the future. For this reason we try to have as open a programming policy as possible! The vast majority of the work is original and some truly exciting new writing and new work has emerged. The StageSpace has proved hugely popular and can get booked up several months in advance. It is available for runs of a few days up to three weeks.
If you would like to perform with us at the Pleasance Islington we will need you to provide us with the following information:

Once we received this material from you we will see what the possibilities are and get back in touch with you.

Please note that the Pleasance Theatre Trust is an unfunded charity and we are rarely able to operate as a producing house - as such we are not currently considering proposals based on the Pleasance acting as sole or co-producer.
