Part of the Actor’s Centre, an organisation set up in 1978 to support actors throughout their careers, the Seven Dials Playhouse is a studio space for contemporary text-based plays and musicals, with a focus on new writing and European/UK/London premieres, revivals and adaptations.

The studio theatre opened in 1994 as the Tristan Bates Theatre, which was funded by acting legend Sir Alan Bates and is dedicated to the memory of his son Tristan Bates, an aspiring actor who tragically died at the age of 19.

Over the past nearly three decades the theatre has presented an extensive range of work and events, including Jonathan Lewis’ acclaimed play I Found My Horn, which transferred to the Hampstead Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre in 2009; Museum of Broken Relationships in 2011; the Ignition new writing festival which ran from 2008 to 2010; and musicals The Last Session starring Darren Day and Thrill Me.

In 2013 the theatre underwent renovation supported by the Foyle Foundation, which saw new seating, technical equipment and soundproofing in the auditorium.
