It is internationally renowned as one of the world’s principal producing theatres, having won over 100 major awards during its 24-year history.

Our mission

The Donmar Warehouse is the home for leading artists to make world-class theatre. We share our work with as many people as possible.

Our intimate space offers artists and audiences a theatrical experience unlike any other, whilst our transfers, tours, and digital distribution enable people to encounter our work worldwide.

The theatre we make is always in conversation with the world today. Led by our artists, we celebrate the canon, revive modern classics, and commission the best new work.  We always prize diversity, discovery and freedom of expression, and with each new production we seek to inspire, innovate, and spark debate.

Our exceptional education work empowers young people and cultivates a new generation of artists, audiences, and active citizens, whilst our creative development programme invites the best established and emerging artists to test themselves and the boundaries of theatre-making.
