Summer 2019 | Jun 19 - Sep 1
Welcome to Iris Theatre
Iris Theatre is an award-winning theatre company based in the heart of London’s Theatreland. Over the past decade we have built a reputation for innovative site-specific theatre with mass appeal. Our year is centred around our summer promenade performances in the grounds and buildings of the Actors Church in Covent Garden. Our ten week summer season generally consists of a Shakespeare play followed by a classic Family story.
Beyond our summer season, throughout the year our Workin Process platform provides the next generation of musical theatre writers the chance to showcase new British musical theatre. In the past year we have taken our site-responsive approach beyond Covent Garden to venues including Hoxton Hall and The Union Theatre.
The company was created in 2007. Growing year on year, Iris gained full charity status in October 2009, with a mission to support the development of the next generation of professional theatre practitioners and to produce a fresh and vibrant repertoire of varied work providing audiences with affordable and accessible theatre.
