About us

The Questors is one of the largest community theatres in Europe, with a membership of around 1,500, of whom around 600 are actively involved in productions.

Situated in Ealing, West London, we offer our members a wide range of activities and social events, in addition to a season of around twenty shows a year, a variety of courses and workshops, and a regular programme of visiting companies. We also have a very lively social club in The Grapevine Bar. Members can get involved in all aspects of production, as well as participate in the running of events, marketing, front-of-house, and other activities.

Since our foundation in 1929, The Questors has had a reputation for achieving the highest standards, both in the quality and the professionalism of its productions. With our own theatre complex (the flexible Playhouse seats around 340 people and the Studio caters for more intimate audiences of around 90), rehearsal space, workshop and professional-standard technical facilities, we offer opportunities for excellence in all areas of theatre production and design.

As well as exploring the mainstream of modern and classical world drama, The Questors has always been respected for championing new or rarely performed plays, and for encouraging experimentation.

Our theatre complex in Mattock Lane, Ealing has good public transport links and free parking adjacent to the theatre in evenings.

Our activities

We perform around 20 plays each year in our Playhouse and Studio, as well as hosting a full programme of guest productions, music and platform events. Our season covers a wide range of theatre, including comedies, classics, modern drama and a family Christmas show. We also have lots of opportunities for getting involved and have a great social life centred on our Grapevine Bar.

We have almost 1,400 members and about 600 of these are actively involved in our work. We also have a youth theatre of about 500 members which is one of the largest in the country.

If you would like to find out more, come along to one of our Open Evenings which take place on Wednesdays at 8.00pm.
