Went to see a comedy version of The hounds of the Baskervilles recently and what a fantastic night out we had! It was the first time that we had visited the Playhouse 2 even though it's on our doorstep. We have never laughed as much in a long time. Brilliant performance from the actors and well done everyone behind the scenes. Just watching and listening to other members of the audience enjoying the play also made it even more hilarious!
Really impressed with the seating and layout of the theatre-brilliant view of the stage no matter which seat you are sitting in. There is a bar upstairs for a drink or they do sell some delicious ice creams during the interval. Can't wait for our next visit, such a great night out. We also had a pre- theatre meal at the nearby Morning Star pub which was also excellent.

What an excellent production of 'Two' we saw last night. Kevin Whalen fantastic as usual. Rachel Harrison too. Looking at the synopsis of the play we thought that it may be confusing with the same 2 people acting out a lot of different characters. Not at all. There was pathos & humour. One of the best plays I've seen there for some time. In fact over the years there have only been a handful that didn't quite work. A great venue. Well worth a visit!

Playhouse2 is a fantastic little venue and a hidden gem of Shaw. I have seen people from Imelda May to Perch Street Family Jug Band and am never disappointed by the calibre of musicians playing there. The staff (all volunteers) are professional and friendly and make every guest feel really well looked after. The afternoon and evening film screenings are wonderful and cosy and give the place a lovely community feel. This intimate theatre is one of my favourite places to visit in the North West - there's always a smile and lots of warmth.

Recently visited Playhouse2 to watch "The Last of the Red Hot Lovers" and thorough enjoyed the show. The Playhouse is a wonderful and intimate theatre and credit goes to the actors and background staff for making our night so memorable. Will definitely be back.
