Fantastic ambiance and just a brilliant design, encompassing a Shakespearian atmosphere. Seats were compact, but OK . Sat in Gallery 1, which afforded a brilliant view. This area seemed to be better than the stalls, which could have given problems if you were unfortunate to be sitting behind anyone tall. Saw " Arden of Faversham". Excellent - if still on,... More

Went to watch Arden of Faversham, great production, great cast and a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Only complaint was that it was quite warm in there, but given it was 30C outside not really surprising.

Wow didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. The cast were excellent and I would love to see it again. Staff at the Swan were helpful and there was a lift for my partner who uses a wheelchair. Nicely accessable and a lovely evening.

Awesome, quaint, personal, good seating, small production plays, - very nice alternative to the larger venue next door if you can't get in.

The roaring girl - fantastic, unusual and joyous production - real fun! Only challenge was the tight leg room after 2 hrs, but it was worth it for the show.

I love the theatre and the town. The Roaring Girl is good and brilliantly performed but you have to give yourself a few minutes to get tuned into the language and idioms.

Went up to see RSC Roaring Girl at the Swan Theatre last week, It was absolutely brilliant. The theatre itself is a real experience and there is an incredible buzz in beautiful Stratford. Lisa Dillon who takes the lead is without doubt one of the finest actors of her generation. She has the most extroidinary stage presence and brings magic... More
