Theatre Royal Stratford East launches new 80-seater

Theatre Royal Stratford East 2015

Theatre Royal Stratford East has launched a new 80-seat theatre space.

Based in Gerry’s, a cafe opposite the east London theatre, the space was piloted last year but will officially open on April 5 with Labels by Joe Sellman-Leava.

Labels runs until April 30, with press night on April 7.

Development of the space was led by property group Lendlease, which began work on the site in the summer of 2014.

TRSE artistic director Kerry Michael said: “It’s been great experimenting with this new multifunctional and intimate performance space, which enables us to produce more shows, different shows and attract an even more varied theatre audience than we already do.”
