How to Get Here

The Playground Theatre is a 12 minute walk from Latimer Road Station. 



We are delighted to announce that the world premiere of a new adaption of Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” will run at The Playground Theatre from April 17th to 28th.

Adapted for the stage by Stephanie Dale, this moving, comedic drama is directed by award-winning Kate McGregor, features original music by Maria Haik Escudero to be played live by a company of actor-musicians and is produced by Theatre6, co-producers or the award-winning, West End smash hit The Scottsboro Boys and critically acclaimed tour of Gabriel.

“Persuasion” – Jane Austen’s final novel – is the story of Anne Elliott; a shy woman from the south coast of England who was young and in love. Engaged to the dashing but poor naval officer, Commander Wentworth, her ambitious family tore them apart. Years later, the tables have turned and a chance encounter could lead Anne towards the true love she has yearned for or a life forever alone.

Filled with live music, drama, laughter and romance, Theatre6’s Persuasion is not to be missed.
