The Stephen Joseph Studio, also known as the German Protestant Church, Greenheys, is part of the University of Manchester, and is in the old district of Greenheys, Manchester, England. It used to lie on Wright Street (off Ducie Street), a street which no longer exists (redeveloped ca. 1955). It is located at grid referenceSJ845963. It was founded before 1895, probably in 1853. It was mentioned in the Manchester Directory for 1858 with the pastor's name of H. E. Marotsky (Hermann Eduard Marotsky): it should not be confused with the German Church in John Dalton Street, established by Joseph Steinthal in 1854 (N.B. Frangopulo (1962) p. 116 gives a date of 1871, perhaps the date of this building). It was first occupied by the university in 1949 and had various uses before its use by the Department of Drama.
The main entrance lies on the west side of the building, with a side entrance on the north. The east side features a rose window. The building houses seven lecture rooms, with space for up to 179 students. It is named after Stephen Joseph, the pioneer of theatre in the round. Since the late 1970s the Mansfield Cooper Building has stood to the south-west.
