Visit a bookshop-turned-theater in London

 


Apr 18, 2012
Whether travelers are looking to curl up to a good book or watch an interactive London play, The Bookshop Theatre offers guests the best of both worlds. By day, travelers can step into the tiny Calder Bookshop and peruse the numerous works of fiction, philosophy and drama stocking the shelves. As the stars emerge in the night sky, the stacks of bound literature are cleared away and a stage takes its place, showcasing plays, movies, lectures and other art events. Travelers can book a car rental in London and venture to 51 The Cut, near the better-known Old and New Vic theaters, to sneak a peek at this one-of-a-kind venue.

Founded by publisher John Calder, who has been at the forefront of London's theater and publishing scenes for decades, the tiny shop hosts experimental plays, lectures about avant-garde literature and tales of the history of Great Britain.

Calder helped popularize Samuel Beckett, Henry Miller, William S. Burroughs and other leading figures in the literary arts with his private publishing company. These works have recently taken new shape, re-released under the Alma Classics' Calder Collection. Travelers will want to make sure they book a car rental in the UK and catch the theater scene of London before their vacation comes to an end.
