Very compact theatre with just two rows of fold-down seating. I saw the tragicomedy 'Bismillah' here and it worked very well as an intimate venue. The details on the actors' faces were very apparent and so their performance was open to scrutiny. However, this proximity also created a deeper connection to the content and made me want to see more theatrical productions in similarly intimate settings. The box office is upstairs and there's a restaurant/bar outside on the ground floor where the patrons' rowdiness will often leak into the performance space and break the immersion somewhat. Otherwise, recommended for small productions.

The theatre is above a spacious bar. The theatre itself has several rooms for small intimate plays with an audience of circa 50. There a private bar for theatre. Well worth a visit!
