Charles W. Patmon, Jr, Artistic Director Common Ground Theatre

Went to see Trailer Trash Christmas what a pleasant surprise here I loved every minute of this play. Awesome little theater and the cast was wonderful. I've never been to a play like it but will be back. They even passed out snacks through out the play it was part of it. Awesome job people."

This is a small black-box theatre that offers lots of interesting and varied theatrical experiences. Different vagabond theatre groups such as Tiny Engine and Bare Theatre do great work here. It's exactly opposite of the fancy DPAC that has touring Broadway musicals (yawn). It's edgy, interesting - sometimes experimental - performance art. Yay!"

A great theatre that tackles some very complex themes. It is always a treat to come here!"

Common Ground Theatre is one of Southeastern San Diego’s jewels. Its focus on presenting work reflective of the African American experience is important."
