This theatre is really in the attic of an old building. It only holds about 70 people which allows you to truly feel the performance. This was a great interpretation of Dickens Great Expectations and it was played brilliantly by all the actors, some who...More

To be honest when the wife booked to see Treasure Island I was sceptical. What fun we had, professional actors & staff. Entertainment level 110%.

I’ve been going to this theatre for the last four years and have enjoyed every performance! The current performance was a brilliant slapstick comedy which had someone laughing every moment. The actors included the audience as if we were apart of the show! I definitely...More
