The Greenwich Playhouse in the central Greenwich district of the London Borough of Greenwich is an eighty-four seat studio theatre which opened in 1990. It is situated above and has its entrance within, the St. Christopher’s Inn Pub. The pub is situated on the east side of the forecourt of Greenwich station.

The Galleon Theatre Company was founded as a touring company in 1988 by Alice de Sousa and Bruce Jamieson. In December 1995, they became the resident company at the Prince Theatre. In September 1998, the theatre closed and was to be lost. The theatre was revived after a campaign to save it, and re-opened with new facilities on 30 May 2000.
