The Cultch presents contemporary plays in a small but attractive setting about current important issues. It is a must!

Lots of humor and the developed abilities not only to sing but to dance and involve the audience. Great sightlines especially for the screens with Hindi trabslation. Shakespeare never had it so good!

I've been to three performances here and they all have been fantastic. One of the plays was at the York theatre which had rather comfy seats. Highly recommend.

Annual pantomime at the York Theatre on Commercial Drive (part of the Cultch). Hugely enjoyable in the English pantomime tradition. It gets better every year. Lots of fun and laughter for adults and children with lots of audience participation.

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
