Stephen Joseph Theatre

The Stephen Joseph Theatre is world famous because of its connection with Sir Alan Ayckbourn, the playwright, whose plays are always premiered in Scarborough.

Sir Alan Ayckbourn is said to be the most-performed living playwright in the English language, having written more than 75 plays, most of which have been performed in London and other leading theatre cities. Over 100,000 people visit the Stephen Joseph Theatre each year and many more experience its work on tour around the world. English Experience students are usually offered a special backstage tour of the theatre while we are in Scarborough.
