some good plays but the ones i like the best were done by local talent and produced and directed by semi-professionals who live here.Pick and choose....
We saw two plays this summer, driving up to Gloucester from the western suburbs. The first was the memorable North Shore Fish, a vibrant play about the fishing industry and its people. The actors were terrific portraying the factory workers in the decaying industry, and they were funny, strong and resiliant. The second was the beautiful rendition of Driving Miss... More
We had a wonderful time over the week-end, taking in "North Shore Fish" at the Gloucester Stage. The theater space is compact, but with a story and characters taken right out of Gloucester itself, the play couldn't miss.

Maybe it's just a small city theatre, but what they turn out is far more than that. Some good playwrights and wonderful actors make this stage company a destination. Do yourself a favor and suscribe for the season, prices are reasonable and if you are a resident there are price reductions....go see some theatre this summer!
