London & Regional Plays

There are all kinds of plays in London and regional theatres to keep you on your seat, on the edge of your seat or maybe even under your seat. From the hilarious 39 Steps to the terrifying The Woman in Black (which has been playing in London for over 25 years) there are plenty of good plays to see.

There are long running classics such as Agatha Christie's Mousetrap which has been playing in London for over 60 years and is the world's longest running play, revivals of some old classics and some fantastic newer plays like War Horse.

So whatever kind of play you prefer there is sure to be tickets for London or a regional theatre to suit your taste.

See our full list of plays below sorted alphabetically or visit the London plays or regional plays page to narrow down the list.
