The Unicorn is the UK’s leading professional theatre for young audiences, dedicated to inspiring and invigorating young people of all ages, perspectives and abilities, and empowering them to explore the world – on their own terms – through theatre.
Year-round, the Unicorn works with some of the world’s most exciting theatre-makers to produce, present and tour a surprising, innovative and broad range of work that is honest, refreshing and international in outlook.
The Unicorn Theatre was founded by Caryl Jenner as a touring company in 1947 with a commitment to giving children a valuable and often first ever experience of quality theatre, and a philosophy that “the best of theatre for children should be judged on the same high standards of writing, directing, acting and design as the best of adult theatre.”
Today, the Unicorn is the national home of theatre for children and young people. Its purpose-built building at London Bridge contains two theatres, four floors of public spaces and two rehearsal studios dedicated to producing and presenting work for and about audiences aged up to 21.
