The Bridge Theatre was built to house the work of the London Theatre Company, set up by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr after leaving the National Theatre, where Hytner had been Artistic Director, and Starr had been Executive Director, for the previous 12 years. This modern Theatre is situated near the iconic Tower Bridge in Potters Fields Park overlooking the Thames on London's South Bank, and has an adaptable 900 seat auditorium which can be altered to house many different styles of production from a thrust stage to a promenade style space.

The Theatre was designed by Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins Architects, and was built at a cost of approximately £12 million, it opened with a production of 'Young Marx' on the 18th of October 2017. The Theatre and its Company have gone on to produce many new plays and productions along with the occasional 'classic'.
