Ustinov Studio


In 2011, under Artistic Director Laurence Boswell, the Ustinov Studio embarked upon the most exciting period in its history, staging regular UK and world premiere seasons of new and previously little-known works.

These included new works from across Europe, classics from the Spanish Golden Age, award-winning plays from the US, and commissioned adaptations of novels, met with hugely favourable national reviews and enthusiastic audiences with several plays going on national tours and to the West End.

In 2016, Kenneth Cranham won the Olivier Award for Best Actor for his role in The Father, which originated at the Ustinov Studio. In 2020, award-winning opera director and theatre-maker Deborah Warner was named as the Ustinov's new Artistic Director.

In between, the Ustinov presents new drama from visiting companies, music and stand-up comedy.

With a stunning design by Stirling Prize nominees Haworth Tompkins – the architects of sister theatre the egg, the award-winning venue for children – the Ustinov Studio is also home to a welcoming foyer-bar which is open to all.
