Excellent venue. The current productions are great. BJF is wonderful dark melodrama with a mostly excellent cast - the exception perhaps being one monotone actress - but there are limitations in any fringe event. SK very funny, with marvellously charismatic cast.
A really great venue. Everything I've seen there has been of a really high standard and the bar / restaurant is a great place to have a drink and bit to eat even if you're not seeing anything. Much easier to get to than it appears on the map too!
Baby Jesus Freak -- gripping and thought-provoking dark comedy, with very good acting in a minimalist production.... the kind of play you're still talking about several weeks later. If I were directing I would have jettisoned the lightweight "Stage Kiss" and persuaded the writer to expand "Baby Jesus Freak" into a full-length play, so as to give the excellent cast more time and space to develop the crucial moments which articulate the forward momentum of the plot....
Took my teenage kids to see this double bill and was pleasantly surprised at how much they loved it. Lots to think and talk about with Baby Jesus Freak, and we all laughed out loud at Stage Kiss which was good fun.
Thoroughly enjoyable evening with some superb performances and exciting writing. Well worth the trek out of town.
