Detailed Information

This impressive regional creative hub (The SJT) was established in 1955, the first theatre “in the round” creative by theatrical pioneer Stephen Joseph and located on the first floor of Scarborough Library.

Stephen’s associate Alan Ayckbourn was appointed as Artistic Director in 1972 beginning a highly successful legacy of new writing staging all of his world premieres.  Alan went on to accept the title of Director Emeritus in 2018.

Today The SJT is hugely successful, staging a huge variety of productions and continuing to champion new work.
