Following last year’s amazing pop-up season in Vauxhall, The Garden Theatre returns this summer with a festival of exciting and eclectic work running from August 1 to 14 in a new pop-up theatre at St. Gabriel’s Halls in Pimlico, London SW1V 3AA.
Headlining the season is a sexy all-male modern ballet based on Delibes’ classic Coppelia, which is partnered with a new piece to the music of Tchaikovsky, The Supermarket Suite.
If it’s hard-hitting drama you are looking for, we have the critically acclaimed Bleach, a darkly humorous, soul-jolting one-man show about sex, violence and city living.
For anyone in need of a laugh after 16 months of restrictions, Ronnie Larsen’s hilarious and naughty Happy Ending, a fast paced, fresh and fruity comedy, features a gay man, a straight man and a massage table. What could possibly go wrong?
What better way to spend a summer Sunday afternoon than sipping bubbles whilst enjoying Afternoon Arias. With beautiful voices sharing an assortment of sumptuous and rousing arias, this is a summer treat for opera connoisseurs and live music lovers alike.

Tyler Everett knows how to take it like a man; he’s made a career out of it. He’s rejected London’s corporate world in favour of screwing his way through the city each night. Up to now he’s been doing pretty well for himself, enjoying a hedonistic life of men, sex and money. But on a fully-booked Saturday night, Tyler’s bubble’s about to burst and he’ll discover the real cost of living in the world’s most exciting city.

A comedy by Ronnie Larsen
Directed by Peter Bull
A gay man, a straight man and a massage table …
‘Happy Ending’ introduces you to a simple, perfectly professional massage therapist who goes about his day job never
knowing who his next client might be. When a new customer walks in the door – full of conflicting signals, hidden agendas and forbidden topics – all of the job’s usual decorum goes out the window. Watch as rules get broken, skin gets bared, the truth gets twisted and things get steamy in playwright Ronnie Larsen’s sexy two-character play.
Running at only an hour with no interval, ‘Happy Ending’ is a delightful diversion to a world of oil and secrets. An unexpected pleasure!
“To define ‘Happy Ending’ too precisely is to give away all its sly little secrets…a thriller, comedy, drama or sex romp (or all of those)” – Sun Sentinel, Florida.
