This oddly-shaped shoebox located down a gangway behind a fast-food place serves as home to the bold, scrappy Old Town troupe known for intense, often dark, diamond-hard works by resident playwrights Brett Neveu and Craig Wright and others of similar sensibility. The teens and tweens of recent offshoot A Red Orchid Youth Ensemble have brought fresh energy to the company.
