I wanted to bring my 7 and 10 year old to a good piece of theatre for their first real experience, I am so glad I chose Iris Theatre. The Hunchback of Notre Dame was an engaging, delightfully fun evening that my boys were hooked on from the start to then end. I really can't think of a better way to introduce children to theatre and I want to say a big thank you to the Iris Theatre team for all of their hard work on this excellent show.

The company produced a very good show of the Hunchback of Notre Dame an interesting way of staging the show with each scene layed out in a different area of the grounds. only downside they don't make toilets available which means that I did not use the refreshments area either, also actual programmes would be nice instead of just a cast list

I thoroughly enjoy the productions that Iris stage during the summer period at St Paul's church/gardens. This production is very family friendly despite some of the darkness in the text/performances. It engages adults and children alike. Thoroughly recommend!

What a great show - the actors were all so talented, playing multiple roles and absolutely believable in each! Gripping and funny in parts it appealed to my 8 year old daughter and teenage son as well as myself. During some scenes the actors were close enough to touch and the audience inclusion was excellent. Recommended !

We enjoyed both shows this summer on separate nights and overall would highly recommend this interactive outdoor theatre as an economic way to pass a summer's night. We debated whether moving about to see different scenes in different places broke up the dramatic tension. Personally I enjoyed the difference from other theatre we see. The troupe is small so play a number of roles which one of us found confusing once - instead i admired the virtuosity of actors transforming themselves within minutes to play different roles. Overall a lot of very enjoyable acting and staging at a fraction of the price of other theatre tickets. A spot of rain didn't spoil our Macbeth which was a fast paced and gripping rendition of the classic Shakespeare work with some fine moments including very moving and worthwhile renditions of Out out damned spot as well the all important Tomorrow tomorrow speech. Hansel and Gretel surprised and challenged with a Russian version, packed with references to other fairytale themes as well as plenty of humour. The show worked for my grumpy old adult and kid companions. Good location but you need to get the loo before the show (they don't have one!) Cheap and cheerful snacks and drinks and generally friendly staff working the show were more pluses. Along with the pricier Regents Park summer theatre, seeing what this little troupe come up with, could well become a regular treat for us.
