In Fisherton Street, Salisbury, there is a rather unusual shaped building that houses a furniture shop called “MultiYork”. On the wall there is a blue plaque that says: This is the site of the Salisbury Arts Theatre”. However, the story of the Arts Theatre, that eventually became the Playhouse, goes back much further than that.
When Beatrix Lehmann opened the Arts Theatre in 1945 she said: “A town without a theatre is like a town without a heart.” The Playhouse may have had a few health scares during its lifetime but it is reassuring to know that at the moment its heart is beating more strongly than ever.
