Loose in London is Third Rail’s annual tour for theatre lovers to the beating heart of English-speaking theatre. It is an extremely popular program and has historically filled up very quickly, often with many returning travelers. Because of the intimate and personal nature of the tour, space is limited to a maximum of 20 participants.
What makes the Third Rail: Loose in London Tour so popular? Over several years Scott Yarbrough, Third Rail’s Founding Artistic Director and expert on contemporary British theatre, and Maureen Porter, Third Rail’s Managing Artistic Director, have crafted an experience that balances great food, amazing conversation, and, of course, dynamic theatre, while also providing plenty of time to explore London on your own. There are no coach tours to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey or tour guides with technicolor umbrellas on Loose in London. Instead there are evenings filled with the most innovative and provocative theatre in London and conversations that are contextualized and spirited. And days that are spent seeing what you want to see. Our hotel is located at Seven Dials right in the center of London’s West End. It’s conveniently located to quickly and easily get wherever you want to go.
Stay tuned for details about the production offerings. No matter the plays, you can rest assured you’ll have a wide variety of experiences that will give you plenty to enjoy and talk about for years to come.
In case you need a little extra convincing, here are some comments from previous participants of Loose in London:
Loved every minute. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
Doing London theatre on your own is a pleasant event. Doing it with Third Rail is a magical, mystical, fantastical experience.
I can definitely see why folks sign up to do the trip again and again!
A wonderful variety of compelling and entertaining performances; up close and personal luncheons with playwrights and directors; great camaraderie, food, drink and laughter—all perfectly choreographed by the best tour guides ever. Maureen and Scott are so knowledgeable, organized, attentive and just beyond fun to be with.
I feel like we’ve been adopted into the Third Rail family. What a warm, nurturing family it is! It is clear that they want us to love theater as much as they do.
Remember: space is limited to the first 20 travelers; so don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to join Scott and Maureen for this one-of-a-kind theatre tour.
