Theatre Thursdays

London is home to some of the world’s best art – and its theatre scene regularly engages with pressing social and political issues. Join Syracuse London each month during our Theatre Thursdays series to see a star-studded performance on the West End grappling with questions race, gender, class, and human nature. After the show, come along for a community conversation with special guests to reflect on the production.
