If you have ever walked along Pitfield Street in Hoxton (London Borough of Hackney) then you may well have walked past the Courtyard theatre and not even noticed. This is because at first glance it doesn’t look like a theatre at all. Housed in a beautiful Grade II listed building you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was still a public Library. The building was formerly the Passmore Edwards Free Library before being converted into a theatre.
