We’re thrilled to kick off our Autumn programme with a brilliant set of shows which really give a flavour of the new direction Upstairs At The Western is taking. This includes an emphasis on quality theatre and in particular work from women and non-binary creatives. We’re passionate about the wonderful diversity that theatre has to offer. Once you’ve seen Katie Arnstein’s Sexy Lamp or Fishhouse Theatre’s Ruby & Cedar, we know you’ll be won over.
This new season marks an exciting time in Upstairs At The Western’s history with six new Directors joining to refresh and revitalise the great work already put in place by those before us. Alongside this wealth of theatre experience, we are delighted to welcome Fishhouse Theatre as our resident company.
A big part of our new mission is to truly reflect the community in which we sit. We will be looking to expand our membership, connect with our neighbours and offer great new writing, production and creative opportunities. Keep an eye on our social media for details. We want to hear from you.
We are looking forward to seeing you for our opening launch party. Great things are coming!
