Hackney Showroom Productions

  • The Legends of Them by Sutara Gayle AKA Lorna Gee

Hackney Showroom makes theatre that wows and delights audiences.

We began producing theatre in 2017 with our critically acclaimed first show, FRAU WELT by Peter Clements and Oliver Dawe. This also played Assembly Rooms for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018.

Our second show BURGERZ by Travis Alabanza was a sell-out sensation in 2018 and returned to the stage in summer 2019, winning a Total Theatre award at the Edinburgh Fringe. BURGERZ toured internationally in 2021 and 2022 and had its final performances at The Southbank Centre in 2023.

Our third show FOR ALL THE WOMEN WHO THOUGHT THEY WERE MAD by Zawe Ashton, directed by Jo McInnes ran from 14 Oct to 9 Nov 2019 at our pop-up theatre residency at Stoke Newington  Town Hall.

TOMORROW IS ALREADY DEAD by Ms Sharon Le Grand, directed by Sam Curtis Lindsay, ran from 6-17 June 2023 at Soho Theatre, and went on tour to Latitude Festival in July 2023.

Our latest production, THE LEGENDS OF THEM by Sutara Gayle AKA Lorna Gee ran from 14-30 September 2023 at Brixton House.

We are currently developing a new children’s show LUNA LOVES DANCE adapted from the book by Waterstones Children’s Laureate Joseph Coelho & illustrator Fiona Lumbers.
