In 1981, young theatre director Brigid Kitchin realised an oportunity to offer theatre workshops for young people in the Unley City area. Without hesitation, Unley Council supported Brigidâ€™s dream with access to the 'Cottage' on Edmund Avenue and this is where the company has resided for 30 years.
