One of several live theatre venues in Portsmouth. They offer a variety of productions throughout the year from popular favorites to original works by local playwrites. Prices are very affordable.

If you are into avante garde theater or improv, this is a good place to visit. The theater is very artist driven and offers a wide array of theatrical choices. This was a favorite of mine when I lived in the area.
