I have been to Theatre503 17 times
altogether and 7 times so far this year
Theatre503 is conveniently located a short
walk from Clapham Junction, or take a bus

something to eat and drink beforehand
It’s a proper theatre with racked seating,
my seat is in the middle of the front row
Theatre503 has an exciting mission
• Theatre503 is the home of groundbreaking plays.

• We create this work for you, our audience, a place
where you can reflect on your place in the world with
others doing the same.
