This is one of the smallest spaces I've ever seen, but Lifeline produces the most amazing plays here. Their specialty is adapting literary works to the stage, notably Jane Austen, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Terry Pratchett. I've seen several of their original plays, too, and...More

Been here many times, today for Fillet of Solo story-telling. It's a very intimate theatre, way more often than not with engaging productions. The heating system is noisy, so they tend to run it sparingly--and in fact put blankets out. Dress warmly!

We are regular theater goers- but recently mostly to Broadway, West End and a couple of downtown Chicago theaters. This tiny (less than 100 seats) theater reminded us more of the great summer theater productions we used to go to at nearby Northwestern University –indeed...More

For 10 years we have been subscribers to both the children's series and the regular series. Monstrous Regiment, the novel from fantasy writer Terry Pratchett's Discworld, is now playing and is probably sold out. Lifelines writers, literary adaptors and actors are the best in the...More
