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.

Then, be chilled to the bone as Dr Henry Howard Holmes welcomes you to his "Murder Castle", where he embarked upon his grisly career as the United States' earliest serial killer!

Nostalgia - Russian Classics Theatre

Nostalgia - Russian Classics Theatre

Russian Classics Theatre warmly invites you to enjoy the collection of her theatrical miniatures under the title of "Nostalgia", which we believe portrays well the main emotion that underpinned whole life of Nadeszda Teffi.

In Russian with English subtitles.

Nadeszda Teffi was a much loved Russian satirical writer. She was known as a Queen of Laughter in her native country and her sense of humor was often compared to that of Chekov.

She was also a poet, translator and a very original playwright. She had to spend most of her life abroad, far away from the country she adored, as she was never able to come to terms with the Revolution and its imprint on the society. Perhaps that's why her brilliant satirical stories are often tinted with gentle sadness.

Another writing salon at the Tea House Theatre.

Voice: The Writer’s Palette

Guest writer: Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott

A strong voice gives prose a recognisable quality that casts a lasting impression on the reader.

Mood and emotion are created through the command of voice and tone, while hints of gossip or slander can add vibrancy and colour to the fiction writer’s palette.

Our guest tonight Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott uses these techniques to great effect in her novel, Swan Song, the story of Truman Capote and the betrayal of his High Society ‘swans’, published to much acclaim in 2018 and recently long-listed for the 2019 Women’s Prize for Fiction.

A screenwriter as well as a novelist, Kelleigh will be joining us to discuss ways to use voice to develop character and story.

Another writing salon at the Tea House Theatre.


Miracle in a Matchbox: The Art of Short Story Writing with guest writer Adam Marek.

Guest writer: Adam Marek

The short story is a wondrous and elastic form where every word must contribute to the final effect. As short story supremo Raymond Carver once said, “Get in, get out. Don’t linger. Go on.”

Join us at our final salon before the summer break for some end-of-term excitement discussing the joys and mysteries of the form with short story whizz and creative writing teacher Adam Marek.

Adam is the award-winning author of two collections whose stories have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and appeared in many magazines and anthologies.

You should leave tonight’s salon fizzing with ideas to transform your words into matchbox-sized miracles.

Divorced, Beheaded, Died: An Audience with King Henry VIII

Select Society presents:

Divorced, Beheaded, Died : An Audience with King Henry VIII

.......... a one-man, two-act, play that has toured to venues across England and the USA.

‘The year is 1544 and King Henry, the Eighth of that name, is engaged upon Royal Progress about his Realm; and has halted here to afford his Loyal Subjects the opportunity to have 'audience' with their Sovereign Lord and King.

The King, recently married to his new, and sixth, wife, Queen Catherine Parr, is in poor health; his leg continues to cause him considerable pain and he is often in a poor humour!

In the course of the 'audience', His Majesty will recount the events of his long reign; telling of his wives and his children, and His Majesty will invite his Loyal Subjects to Petition him or question him on ANY related subject : there may be some surprising answers - a lively Q&A is assured!’

The show's website gives a flavor of what the show is about!

"....what a superb show! It was hard to believe we were not in the presence of the formidable monarch himself .... a pitch-perfect performance .... the audience were enthralled .... by this talented and impressive actor.... do not miss a chance to see such a first-class performance"

Ann Ellison, BEM, Artistic Director, Next Stage Theatre Company and The Mission Theatre, Bath.

Don't Go Into the Cellar - Murder by Gaslight

Murder by Gaslight is a ghoulish audience with two of most infamous poisoners in British history - William Palmer and Harvey Crippen.

We invite you to encounter these murderous men of medicine as the diabolical doctors regale you with their case histories, and invite you to judge for yourselves whether they were in fact, guilty as charged!

Brought to you by Don't Go Into The Cellar! Theatre - the British Empire's leading practitioners of macabre Victoriana!

Click here and there for more information.

Theatre Menu

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

Followed in the interval by a pot of our Tea House Leaf Breakfast Tea and our Homemade Raisin Scones with Ringden Farm Summer Fruits Jam and Cornish Clotted Cream.

Words Away

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.

Beowulf is a classic tale of the triumph of good over evil.
