Amazing theatre in what was once an old church. Clean, impressive design. Great staff, and a lovely restaurant on-site for dinner before our show. Would definitely recommend. The show was great too!

My favourite style of theatre; small and all seats are close enough to feel part of the emotion of the play. A lovely building that has been well converted into a quality playhouse. Watched Goodworks by Nick Enright from the front row so I felt...More

Small playhouse, smartly renovated and with a warm atmosphere. I've seen two plays here which I really enjoyed. The staff are very welcoming. They could do with having a few more snacks at the bar - like a cheese platter - as there are few...More
