Thought-provoking shows in London

A selection of thought-provoking plays and musicals in London, written by some of the greatest past and living playwrights and authors.

At its best, theatre is interesting! That’s not to say it can’t also be entertaining, funny, big, bold and fabulous. But interesting – as in not boring! Theatre that’s provocative, that stimulates you, makes you think… inspires you to think. It’s meaty, it’s gripping, it captivates, it pushes boundaries.

So here’s our selection of intelligent, thought-provoking West End shows in London.
