Jermyn Street Theatre Reopening Fund

Jermyn Street Theatre's doors are closed for now. As a small charity, these are financially catastrophic times. Because  we get no regular grant, our income has been slashed by 95%. We're the smallest producing theatre in the West End - we rent our building and have small cash reserves. We even endured a major flood in April.

But with your help, we turned the tide! We launched the Brave New World Season to keep our isolated audience entertained and our community connected.  Actors from Olivia Colman to Penelope Keith, and Aimee Lou Wood to Jamael Westman, rushed to support us. After a packed summer of online events, this autumn we are staging a marathon reading of The Odyssey and our biggest project yet, 15 Heroines. Our doors are closed, but our theatre is open.

And we'll open those doors.
By Christmas, we plan to open our first socially distanced performances. Operating with only 25 seats is financially unviable, but we have bright ideas to operate in a safe and limited fashion during the winter and spring. We'll bring you old favourites and fresh voices before we can return to our planned programme of full-scale productions. We might be the smallest theatre in the West End, but we have the biggest heart and dreams.

We know times are hard for everyone. However, if you can afford to help out, your donation - big or small - will make a massive difference. The Miranda Club - for the first 70 people giving over £500 - has 25 places left. Hundreds of people have already donated generously, and we're incredibly grateful. Whatever you can give, you're helping our little theatre reopen.

We can get through this together - with your help. We can't wait to welcome you back.

With all our best wishes and thanks,

Tom Littler
Artistic Director
