New Theatre Opens In Battersea Power Station's Arches

The Turbine Theatre opens with its first ever season this summer

Battersea Power Station's arches are now home to a new 200-seat theatre for Wandsworth.

The Turbine Theatre is presented by West End Theatre producer Bill Kenwright - who lists hit hit productions Blood Brothers, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and Cabaret in his repertoire - in collaboration with Artistic Director Paul Paul Taylor-Mills.

Taylor-Mills told the theatre industry's weekly, The Stage, that he wants the Turbine to be a space where he takes the "best bits" from his previous work to "mould my own theatre".

The theatre's first season opens with Torch Song, a new revival of Harvey Fierstein’s funny and deeply touching landmark play, directed by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom, On The Town).

The groundbreaking and Tony Award-winning story of drag queen Arnold Beckoff and his quest for true love in the 1970s Manhattan, is promising to be an hilarious and heart breaking portrait of love, loss, sexual identity and the deep longing for family approval that can drives a person forward... and drive a person crazy.
