"Only mystery allows us to live, only mystery"
At the Marylebone Theatre, our goal is to produce distinctively visionary theatre, which explores and refreshes the great poetic tradition whilst boldly engaging with the pressing issues of our times. Drawing on the inspiration of theatre visionaries, from Brook and Miller to Steiner and Chekhov, we aim to create performance art, which is daringly innovative and arrestingly beautiful. We place a special emphasis on intercultural creativity and the inspiration that arises from working across cultural barriers. As well as in-house productions, we curate a high-quality programme of music, dance and poetry performances. We also welcome in-coming companies from all over the world. Through our funded community-in-the-arts scheme, we also support numerous local groups with important social missions and run our own youth theatre and arts-based educational programme.

New York pianist, Roger Peltzman’s one-person show, Dedication, recounts his family’s tragic history fleeing the Nazis in war-torn Europe using drama, humor, powerful images and musical performances of everything from blues to Chopin. Drawn into the story of people he never knew, Peltzman develops a “relationship” with his uncle, Norbert Stern, a brilliant pianist who was murdered in Auschwitz at age 21. Learning that Holocaust trauma can be inherited, Peltzman recounts his coming to terms with second generation survivor trauma and the role of music in helping to manage wounds that will never fully heal. A singular tale from the Holocaust that is at once extraordinary and relatable

In the Irish border town of Newry, Chrissy promises her sister Claire that after one final drink she will go to The Dry House to get sober. Does she mean it this time?
Following critically acclaimed production Grenfell: Value Engineering, Grenfell: System Failure asks further vital questions raised at the Grenfell Tower Inquiry in the last eighteen months.
Based entirely on the words of those involved in the final phase of the Inquiry (December 2020 – July 2022), Grenfell: System Failure interrogates why the testing regime failed to warn of the danger of installing inflammable materials, why manufacturers promoted such products with no regard to safety, why government regulations ignored the dangers and were not updated, and why politicians failed to ensure proper oversight. Through the testimonies of bereaved residents, it explores how they were failed by the London Fire Brigade on the night and abandoned by the local authority in the chaos of the fire’s aftermath.
