The entrance to the theatre is around the back. Facing the building, go right. You will not be able to access it if you go left..

Excellent! Great writing and acting. The topics ranged from painfully serious to hysterically funny, which brought out the human side of science fiction.

Entertaining and thought provoking show. 5 pieces ranging from comic to tragic. The budget and sets were minimal, but the show made up for it with intelligent scripts and fine ensemble acting. This was a surprise treat.

Creative, imaginative and well acted, this show reminded me of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone.
