Wonderful unique experience to see 'The Constant Wife'. Nice to have a bottle of Coriole Sangiovese - a local wine for us from South Australia for a pre-theatre drink. Lovely cuppa at the interval. Thoroughly enjoyable.

It is not very often that Dublin has such a wonderful play on offer and we jumped at the chance to go to our favourite theatre in Dublin. The play itself was excellent from beginning to end and the production in this wonderful theatre only added to the enjoyment. There is something reminiscent of a bygone era in this lovely... More

Went to see this play tonight and it's an absolute must see. Beautiful staged dressed and produced. The actors were outstanding and the play was humorous and entertaining. The theatre itself was just beautiful. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were all lovely and the tea and the interval was served in China cups. What more could you ask... More

We saw this show on the 1st preview night, so I can only imagine how magnificent it is now. All four cast members are totally committed to their roles but, for me, Denis Conway as George and Sophie Robinson as Honey were the stand outs on the night. I understand Denis Conway was brought into the production with just two... More

As an American I have seen this play several times, most recently two years ago. This is the best performance of them all. My trip to Ireland was capped on May 2 by visiting the Gate Theatre, and it was well worth it. The theater is intimate and spare. Yet the legroom was very adequate for a tall person. If... More

Edward Albees classic play Who Is Afraid Of Viginia Woolf is currently being performed at the Gate Theatre. With a classic play it is vital that the production and performance should be first class and as usual with the Gate Theatre they put on an exceptional show. The four actors are all superb and play their parts with subtlety. It... More
