I didn't even realise this theatre existed any more - the ruins of the original Rose Theatre in Southwark has a small playing space.   I think they mostly do Elizabethan stuff (Macbeth is coming for Halloween), but at the moment they've got a couple more nights of a play by Sam Dowling which gives the story of the Chartists uprising in 1848. (http://www.rosetheat...atson/index.php)

I saw this last night, and it was really rather good.  There are only about 15 seats so the play is happening all around you.  Frey Le Maistre is on my 'one to watch' list.
