Overview

From its base on Newcastle’s quayside, Live Theatre produces work as varied and diverse as the audiences it engages with. To do this it:• Creates and performs new plays of world class quality• Finds and develops creative talent• Unlocks the potential of young people through theatre.Founded in 1973, the theatre was transformed in 2007 via a £5.5million redevelopment. The result is a beautifully restored and refurbished complex of five Grade II listed buildings with state-of-the-art facilities in a unique historical setting, including a 160 seat cabaret style theatre, a studio theatre, renovated rehearsal rooms, a series of dedicated writer’s rooms as well as a thriving café and bar. In 2013 Live Theatre celebrates 40 years of making plays. A special year-long relationship with Port of Tyne to support its 40th anniversary programme recognises Live Theatre’s own strong connections to the river, the Port and the trading heritage of the region.Live Theatre is grateful for the support of Arts Council England and Newcastle City Council.

We visited here to watch My Romantic History. It is quite a small venue, but has a lovely intimate atmosphere, with the area near the stage filled with cabaret tables and chairs.
