Pinch ‘n’ Ouch Theatre finds new home

‘Now we can produce what we want, when we want.’

Pinch ‘n’ Ouch Theatre is on the move. After stints at Hertz Stage, 14th Street Playhouse, 7 Stages, and a church basement in Virginia-Highland, the company has a new home. Located across the street from Ration & Dram, and in addition to having theatre productions, the new digs will play host to a film festival and acting classes, says Grant McGowen, Pinch ‘n’ Ouch’s producing artistic director.


Along with the moving plans, Pinch ‘n’ Ouch announced two productions for 2015: the satire Pizza Man and Neil LaBute’s critically-acclaimed The Shape of Things. Now that Pinch ‘n’ Ouch has a place to call home, the real grind begins.

“Now we can produce what we want, when we want, and there is extra motivation to work hard because we have rent to pay,” McGowen said in a statement.

Pinch ‘n’ Ouch’s production of Darlene Craviotto’s Pizza Man runs from Jan. 22 to Feb. 15, and LaBute’s The Shape of Things goes from March 5-29. For more information on what Pinch ‘n’ Ouch has on tap for 2015, visit their website.
