About the Bread & Roses Theatre: The Bread & Roses Theatre is an award-winning and innovative fringe pub theatre in Clapham, South London, which launched in November 2014. Since its launch the 50-seat theatre has hosted anything from one-off-shows to three-week-runs and welcomed award-winning theatre companies as well as new ensembles. It has immediately been able to build up a busy and diverse quality programme, which is quickly going from strength to strength. Located upstairs at the Bread & Roses Pub in Clapham, and within walking distance of several Underground and Overground stations in London Travel Zone 2 the venue also sits in a brilliant location. From the very beginning The Bread & Roses Theatre has also been dedicated to providing fair opportunities to companies and theatre-makers from all backgrounds, by exclusively offering box office splits instead of hire fees.
With the Bread & Roses Emerging Companies Competition the theatre would now like to go a step even further and offer one company a one-week-run where they receive 90% of box office takings to help them build up their work.
