As a theatre, it brings to mind the small off- Broadway theatres, where the dreamers go to stage their off the wall dreams and the critics dislike. But I guess that, as an offshoot to the main theatre, that is, where they stage what they...More

I have enjoyed so many different genres in the Drum, from professional touring companies to locally produced theatre and local amateur productions including from the Theatre Royal's very own TR2. It offers a little bit of something different.

Being a Janner (native Plymothian) I have been to many different shows in the Drum - for something a bit different and more intimate you can't beat it. It is very reasonably priced as well. Recommended!
