Transport Theatre, founded in 2006 by Artistic Director Linda Livingston, and Producer John Procter, brought Margaret Edson's "WIT" to audiences in Ventura and Los Angeles, to rave reviews, and an Ovation Nomination for its lead, Linda Livingston. It also produced the wildly popular "Judy's Scary Little Christmas" in Ventura, followed by Brian Friel's "Molly Sweeney." A homeless theatre, shows have been staged variously at Ventura College's Circus Theatre, The Victory in Burbank, the then-home of 451 Media on Ventura Avenue, and at The Clocktower Inn, also in Ventura. Transport found a temporary (short-lived) home in Ojai, producing "Pinter Play," two one acts by Harold Pinter, "The Lover and The Dumb Waiter," followed by John Vanbrugh's "The Provoked Wife." Transport is again searching for a new venue (hopefully in Ventura) ...either permanently or for a single production.

"Pinter Play is an entertaining, stylish and impressive production, presented by a bunch of professionals who sure-as-hell know what they’re doing.”
- Peter Bellwood, Ojai Valley News
“All three actors are impeccable in their timing, their inflections and their characters. This is theatre of the highest quality, proving once again that it is the actors, not the acoutrements that count.”
-Molly Sweeney, Ventura Breeze
"A bruising plunge from the lofty into the elemental..in this solid production we feel every step of that terrifying passage. Recommended."- LA Times
" Livingston's performance just astonishes. WIT is our Critic's Pick" - Gerri Garner, American Radio
