A brand new season of autumn events at the Cutty Sark Studio Theatre

Cutty Sark Studio Theatre
17 October–10 November 2014

All performances start at 19.45

The lower hold of Cutty Sark, where precious cargoes of tea and wool were stacked over a century ago, features a remarkable studio theatre. During the daytime, the hold contains displays of tea chests and other artefacts relating to the ship’s extraordinary history. In the evening, the central section can be converted into an eclectic performing arts space, unique in the world, and perfect for cabaret, comedy, one-man shows, lectures, musical performances and small-scale drama.

Following a hugely successful launch earlier this year, the Michael Edwards Studio Theatre at Cutty Sark is proud to present a new season of autumn events.

On top of our Studio Theatre programme, Cutty Sark also presents an evening with acclaimed Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart on 21 November, to celebrate the ship’s 145th birthday. This performance will take place in the Sammy Ofer Gallery, situated underneath the ship’s magnificent hull. View event details
