Catch free theatre at The Scoop when both kids and adults shows are put on every week during a month long festival. Lucky theatre loving Londoners can witness free theatre at The Scoop as part of the More London Free Festival.
Shows for kids and adults
Taking place alongside a programme of free music, film screenings and exercise classes, the festival now gives you the chance to catch a little culture after work or before an evening out on the town with the free theatre performances.
Classic stories retold
To celebrate the eleven year anniversary of free theatre at The Scoop, the 2013 season features a rare staging of Oedipus and Antigone. The plays are presented by Phil Willmott on behalf of London's Free Open Air Theatre Season, and celebrates the Ancient Greek city of Thebes.
Oedipus and Antigone
Designed to delight and entertain all who see it as part of the free theatre at The Scoop over the summer, the Ring Cycle plays are about an extraordinary cast of gods, giants, nymphs, dwarfs and humans, which reveals how mortals and immortals fell under the spell of a powerful ring, possession of which brings about the chaos and glory of absolute power.

The full schedule of Ring Cycle plays goes like this:
6pm - 6.45pm - The Rhine Gold
7pm - 7.45pm - The Valkyrie
7.45pm - 8.30pm - interval
