Kilburn High Roadin Kilburn in the London Borough of Brent, England. It is a publicly subsidised performing arts venue which specialises in new work with political themes, including plays by Irish, African-Caribbean, Jewish and Asian writers, reflecting the mix of communities in the area.
The Tricycle Theatre was founded in 1980, and rebuilt after being destroyed by a fire in 1987. The complex has been expanded several times and now comprises a 230 seat theatre, a 300 seat cinema, a large rehearsal studio, a visual arts studio for educational use (the Paint Box), a smaller theatre/workshop space (the James Baldwin Studio), a workshop room (the Creative Space), a cafe-bar and an art gallery.
In recent years it has been noted for staging 'plays' based on public inquiries, such as the "Truth and Reconciliation Commission", the "
Hutton Inquiry" and the "Savile Bloody Sunday inquiry". These are verbatim reconstructions of excerpts of the inquiries, staged in dry and realistic fashion, without a clear start, end or plot.
