    A Play, A Pie and A Pint® is reminiscent of the great pub theatres in the UK. One-act shows are served up with pies (pizza) and pints (beer or soda), included in the low ticket price. Seating is cabaret-style, at tables. A 'happy hour' theatre, with shows at 6:30pm, we create a theatre experience that's “brilliantly casual.”™

    A single actor takes us on an imaginative adventure to rediscover the story of Mercedes Gleitze, one of the great athlete-celebrities of her time. In 1927, after 26-year-old Gleitze successfully swims the 20-mile crossing of the frigid English Channel, an even greater challenge emerges. Detractors—skeptical of women’s athleticism—claim her achievement is a hoax, setting Gleitze on a course that would forever change both her life and the perceptions of women in sports. Told with inventive props, enchanting surprises, and accompanied by live music, The Art of Swimming will inspire anyone who has ever tested the motto, “Nothing great is easy.”
    Please note that the venue is on the second floor.
