THE UK’S LGBT+ THEATRE
Above The Stag Theatre is an award-winning theatre in Vauxhall, London with a focus on producing LGBT+ themed work including new writing, musicals and revivals. We are the only full-time professional LGBT+ theatre in the UK.
Above The Stag Theatre was founded in 2008 by Peter Bull who secured a space above The Stag, a gay pub in Victoria, London, which has since been demolished. In 2013, we opened our Vauxhall home with adult pantomime Jack Off the Beanstalk.
As a registered charity, we also host exhibitions, rehearsed readings and other events throughout its annual programming offering new writers, photographers and other forms of artists a platform to present their work.
Awards and accolades include:
- Boyz Awards 2014, 2015, 2016
- Artistic director Peter Bull was nominated for a Natwest sponsored British LGBT Award in the category of ‘Outstanding Contribution to LGBT Life’
- Runner-Up, Time Out Love London Awards 2016
