List Upcoming Event


Hampstead Theatre is one of the UK’s leading new writing companies – a company that has just celebrated its fiftieth year of operation.

Hampstead Theatre is a writers' theatre and exists to support a thriving local, national and international playwriting culture. We commission plays in order to enrich and enliven this culture. We support, develop and produce the work of new writers, emerging writers, established writers, mid-career writers and senior writers and have a proud tradition for creating the conditions for their plays and careers to develop.

The list of playwrights who had their early work produced at Hampstead Theatre who are now filling theatres all over the country and beyond include Mike Leigh, Michael Frayn, Brian Friel, Terry Johnson, Hanif Kureishi, Simon Block, Abi Morgan, Rona Munro, Tamsin Oglesby, Harold Pinter, Shelagh Stephenson, debbie tucker green, Crispin Whittell, Roy Williams and Dennis Kelly.

Our Creative Learning programme is an integral part of Hampstead Theatre’s work. We aim to celebrate all aspects of the creative process in ways which support learning and widen access to the theatre’s programme. Inspiring creativity and developing emerging talent, at its best our work has the power to change lives.
