Arcola Theatre

Founded in 2000 by Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen and Executive Producer Leyla Nazli, Arcola Theatre is now one of the most respected arts venues in the UK – blazing a trail in artistic excellence and innovative management since day-one.

Housed in a converted paint factory in Hackney, Arcola is popular with established theatre literati as well as young innovators. It has become well known for the variety of its programming – from new writing to classic drama, music and comedy. Its in-house productions are complemented by showcases of new writing by some of the most exciting young companies in the world.
