Above the Stag Theatre is an Off West End theatre in London with a focus on producing LGBT-themed theatre.[1] It is the only producing venue in the UK presenting a year-round programme of LGBT-interest theatre. The space comprises a 100-seat main house, a 60-seat studio and a café bar.

Above the Stag Theatre was founded in 2008 by Peter Bull,[2] who remains its artistic director. From late 2008 to early 2012 its home was above the Stag, a gay pub in Victoria, London, which has since been demolished. Following an 18-month search for a new home, the company moved to a renovated railway arch in Vauxhall, where it produced over 30 productions. Following a major fundraising campaign, Above the Stag Theatre moved to a new premises on Albert Embankment in June 2018.
