This is an innovative, grass roots, accessible space for creators, allowing imagination to thrive unimpeded by outside constraints. The theatre produced here is authentic and gutsy, quirky and adventurous. Founders Kerri Glasscock and Cameron Undy are very pro-active in ensuring the theatre scene in Sydney remains vibrant and independent. The Old 505 is dark, rustic space at the top of creaky stairs in a Newtown laneway just off the main drag. You can have a drink and a chat in the chill out area, then bring your drink into the cosy, relaxed theatre. At The Old 505 you’re not just watching theatre, you’re experiencing it!
