The Edric Theatre is a dedicated performance space with a reconfigurable 80-seat auditorium, eight studio spaces (two with full standing rigs) and backstage facilities.
All these facilities make Edric Theatre an ideal location for music, dance and theatre performances by professional artists including Fridge Festival and West End Show rehearsals.
It is located within London South Bank University’s Borough Road campus and is a short walk from Waterloo, Elephant & Castle, Borough and Southwark stations.
Student Theatre Company
The LSBU Student Theatre Company’s first production took place in 2011 and was one of the first performances in the refurbished Edric Theatre. ‘Insecurity guards’, a scapegoat and a singing polar bear, are just three of the surreal characters to be found in their version of Anthony Neilson’s tragicomedy The Wonderful World of Disoccia, first performed at the 2004 Edinburgh International Festival.
Each year the Student Theatre Company delivers in a full season of theatre works with theatre professionals including directors, performers and theatre companies. Frantic Assembly are the ‘company in residence’ and work with the Student Theatre Company to deliver highly original, thrilling and energetic devised pieces during several week-long residencies.
