The Ochre House

825 Exposition Ave. Dallas, TX 75226-1743 | Fair Park | 214-826-6273

Location Description:

This teeny-tiny “alternative theater” in Expo Park may have relatively limited resources, with room for only 45 patrons, but its productions -- many of the originals penned by ensemble members -- pack a punch. The resident troupe puts on some of the more envelope-pushing productions you’ll encounter in the Dallas theater scene, from slapstick workplace comedies to scary psychological thrillers.
