Do not go if you’re a prude. But if you love to laugh and want to be mesmerized by two exceptional actors, this is one of the best Little theatre plays we have seen!!!

Great to spend time in the evening. We wanted to watch Buddy Holly but it was sold out. We watched "Harvest" and it was great play based on the true story. The acting was great in the casual setting. Highly recommend.

Yes the theatre is air conditioned to a comfortable temperature. You won't need a winter coat. We were there on the 30th of June when the outside temp was over 30 degrees C. Shorts and a shirt was good enough inside.
