The Greenwich Playhouse was an 84 seat studio theatre in the central Greenwich district of the Royal Borough of Greenwich which opened in 1990 and closed in 2012.[1]

It was situated above and had its entrance within the St. Christopher’s Inn pub, situated on the east side of the forecourt of Greenwich station.[2]

In December 1995, the Galleon Theatre Company became the resident company at the theatre (at that time na#ed the Prince Theatre). Galleon was a touring company founded in 1988 by Alice de Sousa and Bruce Jamieson. In September 1998, the theatre closed, but was revived after a campaign to save it and re-opened with new facilities on 30 May 2000.

In January 2012 the Greenwich Playhouse's closure as a producing theatre was again announced, coming into effect in April 2012.[3]
