Live Theatre

About

Live Theatre is recognised as one of the great new writing theatres on the international stage. It offers everything from world class theatre, stand-up comedy and live music in its beautiful theatre located on Newcastle’s vibrant Quayside. Its quirky historic spaces made from five Grade II listed buildings joined together create a unique atmosphere with an intimate feel.

 

Transformed in 2007 with a capital redevelopment, the  complex of beautifully restored Grade II listed buildings with state-of-the-art facilities, include a 160 seat cabaret style theatre, a studio theatre, renovated rehearsal rooms, dedicated writer’s rooms as well as a thriving café, bar and pub.  It is now developing a new outdoor public performance space and gardens ajoining the theatre due to open in spring 2016.

Live Theatre produces work as varied and diverse as the audiences it engages with. Writer Lee Hall whose plays Billy Elliot and The Pitmen Painters were first produced at Live Theatre calls it ‘British Theatre’s best kept secret.’ As well as championing the art of writing for the stage by producing and presenting new plays, Live Theatre unlocks the potential of young people and finds and nurtures creative talent.

Proper food and proper ale is served in their award-winning pub, The Broad Chare, next door and Italian restaurant Caffé Vivo offers drinks, pre and post theatre meals.

For more information and tickets ring the box office on (0191) 232 1232 or see www.live.org.uk.
