“Mini theatre”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Have been going to The Drum part of the Theatre Royal for years.
They have a good range of plays there, which are usually not mainstream 'famous' shows, but great value and always worth looking out for

“Often prefer it to the Theatre Royal.”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Perhaps getting a bit dated like its big brother but I like the Drum which is a small versatile studio theatre space tacked onto the side of the main theatre and sharing it's facilities. Over twenty years we have been to many dozens of performances here. All types and genres, some pretty hopeless but the vast majority very good. It could be a bit more comfortable and better organised but we have had very few complaints. Plymouth audiences seem often to be more astute and appreciative in the studio space, maybe because they know what they are going to see and appreciate being closer to the action. I am pleased that the Drum now has its own listing so that travellers, visitors and even locals can see that there is a distinct venue with a generally very different approach.
