The Arcola Theatre was founded by Mehmet Ergen in September 2000. The venue was originally located in a disused textile factory on Arcola Street before moving to its current location, a former paint manufacturing workshop, on Ashwin Street.
Over the years, the Arcola Theatre has been host to many successful productions, most notably: the fifth anniversary production of Frank McGuinness’ The Factory Girls; Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s The Painter, and Mojo Mickeybo by Owen McCafferty, which was its first West End transfer (to the Trafalgar Studios).
