“Brilliant place”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Tiny theatre, where the actors, act, sing, move scenery and do everything else to do with the show. The performances are usually extremely well chosen to make the best of the talent and the tiny theatre. I have always really enjoyed going to his very unique theatre, where the shows are always funny enough or engaging enough to make you forget about the sore backside you will inevitably leave with! Love it!

“A venue for the avid Theatregoer”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I'm ashamed to say I've lived near this Theatre for many years but possibly because small Theatre Companies have increasing problems funding enough advertising, I've only now seen for myself what others had told me. That this is a venue with productions of the highest professional standard worthy of support from Theatregoers from far and wide. The play I saw was about John Clare the Northants 19th Century poet. The design, the writing and the actors were superb and the audience knowledgeable and appreciative. And no queue at the bar before the show or at the interval.Loved it all.

“small cosy theatre”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Came here to see an amateur production & was impressed by the quality. Found the staff very friendly & loved the little bar area. Would like to go back to see one of their Christmas shows.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Excellent standard of productions, I just wish they were better advertised and easier to get to. Having said that, it is worth making the effort to go across that side of town.
