Bold New Theatre For Elephant

An immersive and new writing theatre venue is to launch their first programme of in-house live events with What They Forgot To Tell Us (and other stories), and Chris Bush’s play Scenes From The End Of The World.


Set across three floors of a vacant office building that once was a brewery, it has now transformed into a daring, playful and exuberant experiment for site-specific and immersive theatre making.

A place for theatre-makers and audiences to come together, create and thrive in an inspiring space. So far they have collected a team of associate artists, commissioned seven short films shot in the venue, opened a playwriting scheme selecting three young playwrights to champion, and started BOLD Wednesdays, a regular Pay What You Can theatre skills development programme.

BOLD’s Artistic Director Sarah Davey-Hull has opened BOLD Elephant as a performance space for immersive promenade work and new writing and a creative hub supporting freelance theatre-makers.

She says, ‘We are delighted to be launching our first venue. As a company, BOLD have long been committed to making theatre in non-theatre spaces and to brilliant women theatre-makers as part of the company. And finally we get to share this brilliant building with an audience!”

21 St. George’s Road, Elephant and Castle, London, SE1 6ES
