The Factory Theatre has occupied the heritage house since 1983, adapting the original structure to fit the needs of the theatre company. The building now houses both a 200-seat mainstage, with a balcony and proscenium arch, and the 100- seat Studio Theatre, where the original bowling alley floor remains.
About Factory Theatre
From its founding in 1970 with a commitment to Canadian stories; to the Heritage building that now houses the 45-year old company; Factory's vision has always conveyed indomitable courage and resolve; toughness; tenaciousness; and strength of character. Factory has grit. New work and play development are at the heart of Factory's artistic vision. Factory's role is to boldly bring new Canadian voices to the stage. Some voices are bound to be unfamiliar and challenging but the goal is for the expression of that voice to give the audience pause for reflective questions and critical thinking. Theatre as an authentic challenge – theatre with grit.
