This oddly-shaped shoebox located down a gangway between a sushi joint and a taqueria 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. A Red Orchid’s most famous ensemble member, Michael Shannon, still shows back up onstage every year or two, and you'll likely spot him and the rest of the gang around the corner at the Old Town Ale House after the show.
