The White Bear Theatre and bar is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and will re-open with an exciting and innovative new season in autumn 2016 in a stunning environment. Our intention is to build on the success of the last 25 years, focusing on new writing and lost classics.

The newly appointed White Bear producing team are currently programming shows from May onwards so please get in touch to arrange a meeting so that we can discuss your project by contacting founder and artistic director Michael Kingsbury at or call 020 7793 9193.
