The Gate Theatre was founded in 1979 to present ground-breaking international plays to a London audience.
Today, the Gate exists to make international theatre that asks essential questions about ourselves, each other and the world. Our work investigates what it means to be alive now. We imagine our work as a live conversation with our audience. Everyone is welcome in our intimate 75 seat theatre. Our space transforms with every production – no two visits are ever the same.
We nurture the best and most diverse new talent to push the boundaries of what theatre is and what else it could be. We create space for radical, inventive thinking to surprise, delight, challenge and inspire.
Our mission and our approach to delivering it strives to embody our organisational values of community, diversity, invention, internationalism and sustainability.
