By the mid 1990s, the theatre had become dangerously dilapidated and was at the point of physical collapse, and a radical renovation and remodeling program was urgently required. Existing spaces were expanded, circulation rationalized and new parts added – effectively doubling usable space. To the rear, a new nine-story annex provides new dressing rooms and office space. The stage tower of the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs has been extended upwards, a hydraulic lift added, the auditorium reconfigured to improve sightlines, and plump new maroon leather and steel seats installed. A new below ground restaurant/bar and a bookshop have been created. The Theatre Upstairs has increased height and space and now seats 100.
