Programming at King's Head Islington Square

Our new theatre is a much larger space than our pub theatre, and so whilst our programme will naturally need to change, we are still focussing on work that is joyful, irreverent, colourful, camp and queer, and which allows us all to imagine a better future.

We'd love to hear from producers who are interested in discussing larger projects for 200+ seats on longer runs.

To get in touch about this please email Senior Producer Sofi Berenger [email protected] or Associate Producer Zoe Weldon [email protected]. Please only email if you are a producer and have considered financing and marketing your shows at this scale.

Alongside this, we will continue to support and provide programming opportunities for new companies and artists who have exciting, bold, and alternative projects in our new cabaret space. We're not currently in a position to actively discuss this yet, but we will be announcing more specific opportunities and programming information on that soon.

Other artist opportunities for commissioning or collaboration will be on the Artist Opportunities page.


Artistic Ambitions

We programme work that is joyful, camp, irreverent, colourful, and queer, which allows us all to imagine a better future.

King’s Head Theatre is a space for stories by, for, and with the LGBTQ+ community, with the aim of fostering a home for the new wave of diverse queer theatre makers. We therefore especially welcome production proposals which embrace all LGBTQ+ stories or are led by majority LGBTQ+ teams. However, if your show doesn’t fall under this umbrella, we’d still love to hear from you, and there is an opportunity on our proposal to state why you think your show is right for the King’s Head Theatre. We want to specifically acknowledge that LGBTQ+ work for LGBTQ+ audiences has many definitions and we are a space that embraces that, exploring the full spectrum of experiences symbolised by the rainbow flag. We are a home for a new wave of diverse queer theatre makers.

We love to embrace stories that haven't been told before, in ways which haven't been invented yet.
