The Almeida is a world-leading theatre space in North London led by award-winning director Rupert Goold.

The Almeida started its life as a literary and scientific society dedicated to investigating the world. From these beginnings the theatre that has developed continues to ask big, bold questions: of plays, of theatre and how we live.

The Almeida Theatre brings together the most exciting artists to present a dynamic range of production, whether new work or reinvigorated classics.
