Excellent theatre, out of the West End Jun 01, 2017
DRAMA IN DALSTON

The Arcola Theatre was started in 2000 in an old textile factory in Arcola Street by the Turkish theatre director Mehmet Ergen. It moved to the Ashwin Street site in 2011, when the landlord in Arcola Street wanted to re-develop the building. It remains undeveloped. The present Arcola in the former Reeves Paint Factory has three performance spaces – one large, and two intimately small. It also has a spacious bar, and a café area near to the ticket office in the foyer. The theatre company prides itself on trying to be energy efficient. It puts on a range of plays, often performed to a high standard. We have rarely been disappointed, but often amazed by the top-rate acting and direction. In all three auditoria, there is not a seat with a poor view of the stage. Like several ‘alternative’ theatres in London (e.g. The Finborough, The Park, The Gate, The Print Room), what is on offer at the Arcola is usually far more satisfying than what is performed at the more ‘mainstream’ (and expensive) West End theatres. This is why we attend the Arcola frequently.
