The Old Fire Station – Update on building works, February 2016

Tenders were received from five contractors. The lowest price was in excess of the HLF budget and although differences are usual, this was much larger than expected and has taken time to resolve. The best price was from William Anelay Ltd of York who have been designated preferred contractor for the project with the HLF’s approval. Our architects, Thomas Ford and Partners, and project manager have gone through the process of “Value Engineering” with William Anelay Ltd to negotiate costs […]

Berkoff’s East, A Director’s View

Director Kelly-Kim Cranstoun talks about her SLT directorial debut East. Set in the East End in the late 1960s, the play features the London of Berkoff’s own adolescence. What are the play’s core themes? “East is at once a celebration and critique of the performance of masculinity. Berkoff acted in the film of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange just before he wrote the play, and the language is certainly reminiscent of the film, with the same extreme metaphoric pressure, kinetic energy […]

Monthly Social – Save The Date

  Many members have expressed in recent months the loss of our social hub: the SLT Bar. Many of us miss being able to catch up with old friends, see who needs help on upcoming productions and generally setting the world to rights over a beer or a glass of wine. BarCom and GC have been working to secure a venue local to West Norwood so that we can have a monthly social in a private room or area of a bar, giving […]

When We Are Married

Behind the Scenes

The South London Theatre is one of the most friendly amateur/ repertory theatres in London. More than twenty shows a year says it all!

It’s an amazing historically interesting venue. Two excellent theatre spaces. However, we have a bit of a dilemma, many new comers who visit our site, are only […]
