Date Opened: 1959 Confidence Level
The original theatre, The Hampstead Theatre Club, was created in 1959 in Moreland Hall, a parish church school hall in Holly Bush Vale, Hampstead Village. Known then as ‘The Hampstead Theatre Club’, it was founded by the British theatre director James Roose-Evans. Harold Pinter was a permanent fixture in the early years, trying and testing many of his plays in front of the loyal Hampstead audience. In 1962 the company moved to a portable cabin in Swiss Cottage where it remained for nearly 40 years, before, in 2003, the new purpose-built Hampstead Theatre opened in Swiss Cottage. The main auditorium seats 325 people. The studio theatre, Hampstead Downstairs, seats up to 100 people and was turned into a laboratory for new writing in 2010.
