The Tricycle Theatre is located on Kilburn High Road in 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.
