The long summer days are finally here. We're looking forward to the picnics, the outdoor get-togethers and the late night sunsets. But, a British summertime doesn't always mean sunny days and warm nights. British summers and rain are synonymous with one another, and one of the best ways to stay undercover and enjoy an unforgettable summer is at London's theatres.

There's lots of West End theatre to enjoy this summer: Anything Goes at the Barbican, Sister Act at the Eventim Apollo, and more.

But summer is the perfect time to explore and broaden your horizons, and we recommend visiting London's Off-West End theatres this summer. There's theatrical jewels to be discovered all across the city. Be an intrepid theatre explorer and travel across the city at London's must-see Off-West End shows.

Book Off-West End theatre tickets now with our Off-West End Theatre Week Sale! See dozens of Off-West End hits from just £10. The Off-West End Theatre Week Sale runs from 27 June - 10 July.

Jitney - 1200 - LT - 150622


Don’t go round the bend with a lack of summer theatre plans. Instead, park yourself in a seat at The Old Vic and see Jitney in London. The August Wilson play follows a taxi-rank manager who looks after a local group of taxi drivers. When they’re not taking passengers to unwelcome areas of the city, they’re reflecting on their lives. Imagine you’re winding down the car windows and feeling the breeze on your neck. Instead though, the breeze is the feeling of watching an August Wilson play come to life.
