Closing Date: 14 June 2021
Park Theatre presents work of exceptional calibre in the heart of Finsbury Park. We strive to ensure that our building, and the work on stage, is inviting and accessible to all. We work with writers, directors and designers of the highest quality to present compelling, exciting and beautifully told stories across our two intimate spaces.
Our programme encompasses a broad range of work from classics to revivals with a healthy dose of new writing, producing in-house as well as working in partnership with emerging and established producers from both the commercial and subsidised sectors. Within the industry, we aim to be a creative home from home for actors, writers, directors and producers; we offer our spaces as a platform for development, rehearsed readings or sharings of new projects, with the aim of securing a future life either on our own stage or on another.
We are invested and rooted in our local community and seek to work with local residents, businesses and partner organisations to create a better Finsbury Park for everyone. In everything we do, we aim to be warm and inclusive; a safe, welcoming and wonderful space in which to work, create and visit.
