Our intimate 120 seat theatre regularly plays host to many award-winning and exciting theatre companies. For example, last autumn our audiences enjoyed Open Clasp Theatre Company’s critically acclaimed production Key Change, winner of The Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award and the New York Times Critics Pick. Whether you’re an aspiring actor or looking for a great night out, there are so many benefits to seeing live theatre. Not only will watching a play enhance your literary knowledge, live theatre can increase community awareness, social skills, cultural perspective, and artistic abilities.
