People's Light, a professional, not-for-profit theatre in Chester County, makes plays drawn from many sources to entertain, inspire, and engage our community. We extend our mission of making and experiencing theatre through arts education programs that excite curiosity about, and deepen understanding of, the world around us. These plays and programs bring people together and provide opportunities for reflection, discovery, and celebration. Founded in 1974, we produce eight to nine plays each season, in two black box theatres with 340 and 160 seats respectively, mixing world premieres, contemporary plays, and fresh approaches to classic texts for our 7-Play, Discovery, and Teen Series.

Excellent professional theatre and a great restaurant in a lovely setting. Acres of free parking. Easily accessible from major roadways and some public transport.

We held our daughter's Bridal Shower Brunch here in September 2016. The staff were courteous and helpful during the entire process, from booking to day of event. The food was abundant and very delicious! A great time was had by all. Most importantly our daughter.
