I spent a long time debating whether to pay the extra for the jury seats or not - in the end I am glad we didn't. Whilst I appreciate that being part of the jury adds the extra novelty value and makes you feel more...More

Court room setting with a talented cast. Most of the cast had strong voices but others were, in parts, quite difficult to follow and dependent on their position on stage. Although good actors i struggled to hear the female "witness for the prosecution" and the...More

This is a must see. Having the play set out in an actual courtroom adds drama from the very start. We opted for the jury seats which made us, essentially, part of the production. Could not recommend these seats more highly! Spoiler Free Review The...More

End of a row with very good view. Thoroughly enjoyed this production. Word of caution at end of scenes there is very loud music/sound effect. You won’t be let in if you arrive late as the aisles are used during the performance. The Zen cafe...More

An excellent play, with a setting which you felt so much a part of. One slight fault was the rake of the back seat, just too straight. My wife on the night had a problem with steps, but she was greatly helped by staff who...More

I worry about things that could be a bit gimmicky - do you end up over paying for a meal just because it’s in a strange location, or in this case would the play be mediocre and people go simply because it’s an unusual location....More

My daughter and I really enjoyed the play. The setting is perfect and the few scene changes were effective and slick. Actors were great. My only disappointment was the bar. Not really a bar, more a stall selling drinks. There were only 6 upright chairs...More

Really enjoyable. A perfect, unusual setting - full of atmosphere. A great story that kept us entertained and intrigued throughout with excellent acting. Value for money as well - we were in the back seats of the gallery and still had a good view.

Recently watched this play at its County Hall location on the south bank. It's a great play that keeps you guessing to the end. Great actors and the setting is perfect which really adds to the atmosphere of the play. Highly recommend.

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized
river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo

They get sworn in before the performance. It’s only the main juror who stands up and says guilty or not guulty the others don’t do anything. If you’re worried just book a normal non juror seat

I’d say not, the involvement being essentially standing up when the judge comes in. I was seated second row, near the end of the stage and found that excellent.
