Love this little theatre and have seen some great plays, last one being Hay Fever which was slow to warm up but got funnier. Very cramped seats. Ticket prices are good though.

This is a gem of a theatre, nestled in the heart of Stratford. Seating around a hundred people, it offers an intimate theatre-going experience which can't be got at the larger venues in town. Its resident theatre company stages a wide variety of shows, from...More
