"Theatre should be a place where society can examine itself. Where else can you see the special relationship across the pond so well reflected? "Mind the Gap Theatre - very important work."- Dame Judi Dench, advisory board member

Welcome to Mind The Gap Theatre - your home for the best new British plays in New York City!
With our dedicated and talented acting company, our goal is to build a theatrical bridge between NY and the UK. Have a butcher's around the site and see what we're all about.

Mind The Gap Theatre exists to find, read, evaluate, develop and ultimately produce new British theatrical writing in New York City. While our focus is on presenting new British works, with a company of mad talented actors and playwrights from BOTH sides of the pond, we occasionally like to show off what the Yanks in our company can do by taking a new American play to the UK.
We are eager to read and present plays from all over the British Isles to achieve a level of regional, ethnic and gender diversity.
After being read and critiqued by at least two members of the committee, up to 25 short plays per year will be showcased in our BRITBITS series in New York City.
The ultimate goal of Mind The Gap is not merely to present readings, workshops and short plays but to bring to life the highest quality productions. It is our goal to present 1-3 new full-length productions in New York City each year and showcase one new American play at a UK venue or festival.
We are very interested in co-productions and in transferring smaller plays with theatrical producing partners in the UK.
