‘Theatre at its most vital and alive’

Time Out on TAC’s Barbarians 2012



Tooting Arts Club is back!
And with a motley crew in tow…
Meet Paul, Jan and Louis, it’s 1977, Britain has just emerged from a worldwide recession. It’s the Queen’s silver jubilee year but the boys have
little to celebrate. With widespread youth unemployment and little opportunities
on the horizon, there is a sense of
anarchy in the air…


I’m delighted that Barbarians is going to St Martins. It’s the perfect home for it. When I wrote Barbarians I was trying to capture that energy of punk on the stage, so to have it performed at such an important building from that time is very exciting.”  ~ Barrie Keeffe


We couldn’t be happier to be reviving our award-winning 2012 production by taking over the now empty Central St Martins School of Art on the Charing Cross Road. No other London Venue embodies the creativity and imagination of the young people of the 70s, and as such, it provides a perfect playground for the rebellious, uncontained energy of the young men we meet in Barbarians.


Set to a soundtrack of The Clash, The Sex Pistols and The Jam, it’s gonna be one hell of a party,
we do hope you can come and
make some noise with us…
