Located at Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse in scenic North Conway Village, M&D Playhouse was founded in 2000 by Ken Martin and Mark DeLancey with the idea that theatre had a responsibility to educate as well as entertain. With 37 NH Theatre Awards, including the Francis Grover Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award for founding director Ken Martin, and the NETC Award for Excellence in the American Theatre, M&D has proven that quality live theatre has a place in this vibrant community.

M&D Playhouse is an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit organization. M&D became the theatre in residence at the historic Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse in 2019, after 10 years at Willow Commons. The playhouse requires renovation and repair, and much work has been completed already. We hope our patrons will be pleased!

While much has been accomplished, the restrooms in the playhouse are not currently ADA compliant. Recognizing the national interest in preserving historic properties, Congress established alternative requirements for properties that cannot be made accessible without “threatening or destroying” their significance. If you are in need of a handicapped accessible bathroom, we please ask that you utilize the bathrooms located in the lobby of the Eastern Slope Inn Resort and thank you for your understanding.
