Triptide Thoughts

Apart of gaining a lot of respect from comedians, pleasance theatre apparently gains its strength from the actors that grace its stages; so through its shows has become highly respected. The prices are also reasonable, and there is bar where you can enjoy drinks before the show. Seating is not allocated, so it is recommended to arrive early to get the seat of your choosing.

According to its website; 'Pleasance' means:
1. a pleasure ground 2. a pleasant and secluded part of a garden. 3. a fundamental feeling that is hard to define but that people desire to experience
