Amazing production with a very young cast, staged with incredible pace and energy. It's returning later in the summer - get tickets if you can 😀

We have visited many times and love this little theatre. The staging and productions are innovative and creative. The acting and direction excellent. Beautiful setting and the onsite restaurant offers simple, hearty food for a pre theatre supper.

Such a great venue for theatre, it's architecturally wonderful, with huge old wooden beams (and the original water wheel is still visible on the way in to the theatre on ground level). We saw Faust x2 here last week and the sound was good, the...More
