10 May - 11 Jun

A festival of new theatre for the here and Now.

What is NOW?

NOW is our annual festival of contemporary theatre.

It’s a carefully curated programme of some of the best live performances brought to you via our home in Hackney Wick.

Selected from hundreds of ideas received through open submissions, we’ve partnered five of the brightest new voices with five of the the most inspiring and influential artists of today to form week long double-bills of daring and unapologetically new live performances.

This year’s festival includes work from award-winning theatre makers including Emma Frankland, Dog Kennel Hill Project, Ira Brand, Jude Christian and Chris Goode with his avant-garde performance boy band, Ponyboy Curtis.


Each night is a double bill. For only £12 you can see two great shows back to back.


Two nights = £20
Three nights = £30
Four nights = £40
Five nights = £50

Simply put all the shows you want to see in the basket. We’ll do the rest.
