Tea House Theatre

Winner of Time Out Love London Awards 2014

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.

A Small Dot On The Western Front



Written & directed by A D Cooper

Hurcheon Ltd. is delighted to announce a new one-woman show. Awardwinning
writer A D Cooper presents A Small Dot On The Western Front, the
story of the only woman to serve in the British Army in World War 1.


A D Cooper is a writer, copywriter and scriptwriter. She’s also directed a
string of short films since 2010, including six drama films for Hurcheon Films
that have been selected and screened at international festivals. In 2014, she
made an excerpt of this story into a short film released under the same title
that has been selected by film festivals in the USA and the UK (2015/6).

But there’s so much more to this extraordinary tale: In September 1915,
Miss Dorothy Lawrence cycles from London to France before disguising
herself as a soldier and mingling with the sappers laying mines under No
Man’s Land. Once revealed, her mere presence causes explosions of a very
different kind. Now in 1919, she is ready to relate her unusual adventures.
Presenting Angela Ferns in the role of Dorothy Lawrence.
