I have visited this theatre on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. It is small, intimate and quirky. Ipswich is so lucky to have such a fantastic independent theatre company and I would highly recommend people to support it.

This is a very small, exactly like the Gatacre Rd theatre also in Ipswich. Seems to produce similar plays as well.
