Tea House Theatre

Winner of Time Out Love London Awards 2014, 2016 & 2018!

We are based in an old Victorian public house that opened in 1886 on the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens; immortalised as the ‘Vanity Fair’ in Thackeray’s eponymous novel.

We serve some of the best loose leaf teas available, proper sandwiches and homemade cakes; not to mention the best full English breakfast in London. Our teas have individual subtle flavours which would be overpowered by the instant, coarse, hit of coffee, so we do not sell it.

We make our own marmalade and jams, all for sale by the jar and all our teas can be bought by the ounce. Our meat comes from our local butcher and our fruit and vegetables from the local market gardens around us.

We are trying to be different. We will not hurry you. If you visit us on your lunch break, then have one, you will be more productive in the afternoon. If you want to have a meeting, we will not disturb you. If you are ‘working from home’, we have wifi. If you have children, we have highchairs, a chest of toys, and milkshakes. We always have the daily papers, so please, relax, and share in what we are trying to create, take a load off, and have a cuppa.

The Art of Failure: resilience and the writer

Guest writer: Emma Darwin

How do you pick yourself up when your writing has gone horribly wrong?

In her new creative non-fiction, This is Not a Book About Charles Darwin, Words Away’s own Emma Darwin draws on her experience of failure, from her six unpublished early novels to the catastrophe of trying to write fiction about her embarrassingly famous family.

Kellie, joined by guest chair Caroline Green, will be talking to Emma about how you not only survive disaster as a writer, but actually develop resilience for whatever might happen next.

Recovering Voices and Stories Lost From History

Guest author: Alice Jolly


Societies have so rarely recorded the voices of the marginalised and enslaved, the poor and oppressed or dispossessed. So how does a writer go about researching and reimagining these unheard or erased voices? You might have a germ of an idea but not sure how to begin or where to find the raw materials. Then there’s the question of form – fiction versus non-fiction? Join us this evening alongside novelist, playwright and creative writing teacher, Alice Jolly, as we discuss ways to develop character, point of view and some of the other tools you might need to recover voices lost to the past.

Her work has been compared with Doris Lessing, Brian Aldiss and Christopher Priest. Lawrence Durrell compared Anna Kavan to Virginia Wolf, and Anais Nin.

Readings will be from her book ASYLUM PIECE, of which Joyce Carol Oates wrote 'There are gems here, passages of startling poignancy and radiance...'

Welsh Rarebit

Melted mature cheddar with mustard and egg on toast, served with a salad.

Originally called ‘Welsh Rabbit’, a witty insult about the Welsh, in that they would offer you rabbit and then give you cheese on toast. Ours includes mustard and egg according to the original recipe

or

Kedgeree

A classic Anglo-Indian dish. Curried rice, sliced egg and smoked
mackerel, served with mixed leaves and balsamic vinaigrette.

or

Steak and Kidney Pudding

An English classic, mouth-watering steak and kidney encased in delicious suet pastry served with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.

While the invention of the pudding cloth revolutionised English cooking in the 16th Century, the first recorded recipe for steak and kidney pudding appears courtesy of Victorian domestic goddess Mrs Beeton in 1861

Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol by Neil McGarry

Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol by Neil McGarry

A Christmas Carol - Tea House Theatre, London 2018

American actor Neil McGarry brings his award winning solo performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to the Tea House Theatre on 6 & 7 December, 2018.

Using only Dickens’ original text, McGarry delivers a riveting performance of the classic holiday story.

Fully staged, complete with dancing, this one-man tour de force has left critics and audiences in the U.S. laughing and crying with joy – and rightly so.

Simultaneously moving and entertaining, the result is a kaleidoscope of action, humor and language, delivered with a simplicity that disarms and touches the heart.

Directed by British actor Ross MacDonald, and created under the auspices of The Bay Colony Shakespeare Company, McGarry’s performance of A Christmas Carol won "Best Solo Performance" from the Independent Reviewers of New England and was named "Best of Boston" by critic Jules Becker.

More praise for this uniquely moving production:

"Astounding and charming performance... A ‘Carol’ worth singing about... the story has never been so alive and real... ‘A Christmas Carol’ for the ages” - Jack Craib, South Shore Critic

“McGarry’s performance is extraordinary on many counts but one especially; his characters are all so sincere and innocently drawn, that you give yourself over to the story like a child … a magical alchemy absorbs and involves the audience and holds them spellbound” – Beverly Creasey, Boston Arts Review

“... deeply moving... one of the most artistic, creative and energetic performances of the 2014 Boston theater season... an early Christmas gift I will long remember” – Dr. Al Chase, White Rhino Report

“The performance … broke my heart and renewed it … captivating, funny and thought provoking. I will see this again and recommend it for all ages to experience” - Jessica Holcomb, audience member

Show only £15

Christmas Dinner & Show £45
