Having just seen the excellent ‘39 Steps’ at the New Vic I was at least expecting a similar level of acting ability. ‘Intemperance’ was shockingly bad, poor acting, shocking direction and a poorly written script which was at best incoherent. It was an expensive thoroughly...More

The essence of the New Vic is that it it is theatre in the round. The audience sit in teared seating all around the stage pit in the middle. It's a very different experience to proscenium arch theatre; you feel closer and more involved. Actors...More

Such a challenging production for the 4 actors brilliantly fulfilled. Loved every minute of it. It's such a pleasure to visit this amazing Theatre in the Round where everyone is made welcome.

Yes this was an evening of really good theatre- dare not blink in case you missed something and excellent interaction with audience. The sheet versatility of the four actors carried any deficiency in the script. Facilities and staff of theatre welcoming and friendly as usual.

The car park is just behind the theatre, it gets quite busy though so arrive a good 30mins before performance
