Led by Artistic Director Josie Rourke, the Donmar is an intimate 251-seat, subsidised theatre in Covent Garden; right at the heart of London’s West End. It is internationally renowned as one of the world’s principal producing theatres, having won over 100 major awards during its 24-year history. The Donmar is London’s home for leading artists to make world-class theatre that engages, inspires and entertains. We share our work with as broad an audience as possible.
Our intimate space offers actors and audiences a theatrical experience unlike any other, whilst our transfers, tours, and digital distribution enable audiences to enjoy our work worldwide. The theatre we make is always in conversation with the world today. We celebrate variety on our stage, re-energising the canon, reviving modern classics, and commissioning great new work. We always prize diversity and freedom of expression, and with each new production we seek to innovate and spark debate. Our exceptional education work empowers young people and cultivates a new generation of artists, audiences and active citizens, whilst our creative development programme invites the best established and emerging artists to push themselves and the boundaries of theatre-making.
