A great venue that produces lunch time shows, a great way to spend eating a sandwich. The stage is spacious enough allowing great use of movements. Seats are ok, decent facilities with a nice bar.

Wow! This is a small theatre tucked away off Fleet Street and I've seen some great plays there all for under £20. Some are better than others, the MTA (The Musical Theatre Academy) ones are the ones I liked the most. For a good evening...More
