The New End Theatre, Hampstead, was an 80-seat fringe theatre venue in London, at 27 New End in the London Borough of Camden which operated from 1974 until 2011. It was listed widely on the internet, including with the New York Times.
It was founded in 1974 by Buddy Dalton in the converted mortuary of the now-defunct New End Hospital. The mortuary was formerly linked to the hospital across the road by a tunnel. It was owned by Roy and Sonia Saunders from 1986-1997. Its Artistic Directors included Sonia Saunders (1986-92), Jon Harris (1992-96), Neil McPherson (1996-97), and, from 1997 to 2011, it was both owned and run by Artistic Director and Chief Executive Brian Daniels.
It had a number of successes including A Day in Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine, which transferred to both the West End and Broadway; World premieres of work by Jean Anouilh, Steven Berkoff, Tom Kempinski, Richard Stirling, and Arnold Wesker; and Tony McHale and Geoffrey William's play Tunnels Without End, featuring Billy Lomas and Rebecca Simmons.
