I read this book years ago and really liked it. We’ve seen lots of shows in London, mainly musicals and this was the first time we’ve been to see a play. It didn’t disappoint. The main storyline is about how an autistic boy experiences the...More

Where do I start?! I found this theatre performance really painful. I came out with a banging headache and was sensitive to loud sounds and bright lights. It was really depressing and nothing positive came of the performance apart from the 2 minutes where a...More

This was amazing. With such a basic set, you are still fully emerged into the world. I love the book as well, but the play is incredible working with such a sensitive subject. Actors are very talented and this provides laughs and tears. Defo see...More

No denying the original take on set design and the way the lighting created different environments for the characters to work withing. However even this became repetitive after a while. Characters were 2d, story thin. The seats were akin to sitting on slabs of granite,...More

Another production. This has got even better if it were possible. The actors are great. A really good delivery of the Mark Haddon book.

This is the most amazing play. Working with children on the autistic spectrum I am bowled over by the insight and understanding of the world of the autistic teenager - his confusion about the world, his hyper-sensitivity to touch and sound, and his literal interpretation...More

I bought the cheapest ticket for £18.50, sat in the last row of the grand circle. It still gives an unrestricted and clear view of the play. This play is witty, funny, thought provoking. The stage producer had put in lots of effort into designing...More

I brought my 12 year old boy and he loved it! It is a really wonderful story well told and certainly gives great insight into the world of autism.

We sat at the front 4 rows back and it was a great view. I'd recommend you go to the ticket offices in Trafalgar Square at 09:00 on the day you wish to see this and we got our tickets for £15.00. Good luck and enjoy
