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 Man With The Flower In His Mouth

An hour long retelling of Pirandello's story of a meeting of two perfect strangers. One of them suddenly opens up to tell the story of his life and his potential death.

The play is believed about the importance of connecting with another human, even when you are on the verge of death you must open to people.


This play, alongside with Six Characters in a Search for an Author, is one of the most famous and influential works by Sicilian writer Luigi Pirandello. In it's day this short one act piece shocked the audience and challenged the very nature of classical theatre.

Can it still do it today? Come and find out for yourself.
