    Great night out
    I saw The Father last Saturday night, what an extraordinary play with outstanding actors. I'm a big lover of theatre myself and this is definitely one of the best plays I've seen in Brisbane. This was my first visit to pip theatre and I look forward to returning. Such an amazing boutique venue with friendly atmosphere.

    First Time Visitor - Very Impressed
    A group of us attended "Before the Parade Passes By". It was really easy to find the venue as a few of us hadn't been there before. Quick ride in the lift and a friendly welcome awaited us. We were given clear and helpful instructions on where things were, what to do, etc. We enjoyed a drink in the terrace bar area before the show. Getting our seats to watch the show was easy and all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the show. Fiona Buchanan was fantastic. She made us cry and she certainly made us laugh; it truly was a wonderful show. We then enjoyed a drink back in the terrace bar after the show. Overall the evening at PIP Theatre was a thoroughly enjoyable night.

    Love Pip Theatre
    Love the ambience of PIP Theatre. Intimate yet very comfortable. The show was great. Loved the performances by the two leads, Crystal Lyons and Jesse Blachut. Lovely mixture of hilarity, reticence, reminiscence, longing - all beautifully layered by these talented actors. Another lovely production at Pip Theatre.

    Beginning
    I was really impressed with calibre of acting in Beginning. Crystal Arons & Jesse Blachut’s English accents (I don’t think either of the actors were English) were spot on. The mixture of humour and poignancy was well paced. The theatre space was intimate and being that close really immerses you in the story. I was totally tearing up when Danny was telling Laura about the loss of his daughter and his thoughts of suicide. I only wish the chairs were a tad more comfortable.

    Great night at Pip Theatre in Milton
    I went to Pip theatre with a family member last night to see ‘Beginning’. We both had a great time. It was lovely to get a beverage in the terrace bar before and after the show. The play itself was fantastic! The actors (Crystal and Jessy) had amazing chemistry, it was hilarious, sentimental and very relatable.

    The Penelopiad at Pip Theatre , Milton , QLD
    So wonderful to experience affordable quality live theatre in an intimate space. With the lovely outside courtyard to enjoy a selection of beverages to the interesting theatre space, it is an evening to enjoy, and share if you can. The Penelopiad is a clever dramatic piece by Margaret Atwood and the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble. Who have brought to life this interesting play. The standard of acting is top class and the use of space innovative.

    Delightful, professional, and intimate
    This is a gem! The whole thing was delightful, from the matching Persian carpets and piano in the foyers, the wonderful, breezy bar (it made me want to host a party there!) to the intimate, yet entirely professional, theatre itself. We were even able to park under the theatre, and exit direct from the bar after the show down a long stairway direct to the car. If we'd needed it, a lift was also available.

    A cosy and intimate venue
    The PIP theatre is an initimate and cosy venue and we enjoyed every second of our experience there. Going up in the lift was a bit like separating ourselves from the world then we entered through a gallery of local art to a fabulous balcony to enjoy time with friends before the show. Look around because you access the theatre via a lift - took us a few moments to find it. The play, "The Bed Party"was absolutely amazing and this was the perfect venue for such a privileged peek into the lives of the characters. We look forward to coming again as soon as possible.

    Parasocial Parallax provides unique experience
    Andrew Gillanders' interactive play Parasocial Parallax was a unique experience with the audience choosing the path of the story. Clever and thought provoking with a fantastic cast headed by Eliza Allen. Pip Theatre is a welcoming, intimate and versatile venue.

    Pick a show and just go!
    What a night! The venue, staff, crew and show were sensational. The team have created a performance space unlike anything I've seen, it provides a unique and exceptional environment for a huge range of shows. The talent oozes from the players and leaves you wanting more. We'll be back! See you there.

Wonderful immersion experience. Talented cast and all were very accessible to the audience.
The gunshots etc could have been crisper and louder but didn’t detract from excellent performance. Many thanks

I saw the Art Of Courage at Pip Theatre and I thought the show was so powerful, eye opening, and overall just an excellent piece of theatre. The venue is really interesting, you do not expect to enter into such a large space from looking at it from the outside. It’s a dynamic venue that you have to visit. Great selection at the bar too!

A brilliant piece of immersive theatre! With an incredible sound design and landscape to immerse yourself in a stylised version of modern Ukraine. This story invited me into a cultural and social world in which I’d never known anything about and reminded me of the terrible bloody nature of war. A definite must see!

PIP theatre is a small, independent theatre in Milton. It's accessible, quirky and welcoming. Safe for LGBTIQ+ folks. i've seen 2 shows and the team/staff seem to genuinely love their work, and the shows were excellent. there's a lift up to reception area and performance area, bar space inside and on balcony and plenty of seating.

I love the Pip Theatre space. It was the first time I've been there and it is really gorgeous, relaxed and cosy atmosphere. The Brisbaret show was fabulous. Funny, festive and highly interactive. A great night out!

We had a fabulous night seeing Sex and other Philosophies. A great welcoming venue. Loved being able to sit at a table and enjoy some wine while watching the show and mingle in the bar area after.
