Unfortunately, the theatre is too near to a school to allow for selling wine or beer. Refreshments are tea & rather routine candy. Take whatever you buy into the theatre at the beginning - there's no intermission. Seating is comfortable & the sight lines are good, but it's open seating & for this play, getting a seat in the middle is best since the action is spread across a rather wide stage area.
Nothing much available outside the theatre. We drove up to the theatre on Clark Street, which took us through Andersonville where there's a lot of good eating, and which is just a few blocks from the theatre.
There is a small parking lot right by the theatre, & there seemed to be plenty street parking.
We ususally walk but this time we parked in Raven's Parking lot - it is FREE-FREE is good.
The free parking in the theater lot is very limited. Arrive early if you do not want to pay for street parking which is abundant.

Free parking if you get there early enough. If not there is parking on the street.
Traffic and parking on a Friday night are both a drag, so it's better to go on another day.
Eat before or after the show at Summer (gourmet pan Asian at good prices) a mile or so East of the Raven theater on Granville right next to Red Line El tracks (just East of Broadway). Get the Nam Sod for sure.
Open seating. Doors open 15 minutes before the performance. Get there early to stand in line (indoors) if you want first choice of seats.
If you eat across the street you can park in their lot free.Restaurant is Coopers.
Parking is free in a small lot right next to the theater. Or you can take the Clark 22 bus to Granville or the 151 Sheridan to Clark & Devon and walks two blocks.
