Paradise in The Vault: The Annexe

The Annexe has a black box stage which you can transform to suit your performance. The stage benefits from a large stage right wing and entrances in both upstage corners and mid-stage.

Perfect for:

  • Solo performances
  • New work
  • Contemporary theatre
  • Black box performances
  • Sketch, improvised & stand-up comedy
