Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Arrived in the morning on the off chance of getting two tickets and got a cancellation. Had an excellent night and the play was just awesome.

“superb production of Richard II with David Tennant at RSC”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Superb, breathtaking production of Richard II at RSC - great production & fantastic performances from a brilliant cast. David Tennant is mesmerising as Richard II his presence is magnetic although the whole cast help to make this a truly memorable experience for which we must also recognise the contribution of the whole creative team who fully optimise the excellent facilities of the RSC - from the haunting music to the dramatic staging - well worth the cost of the ticket.

“Wonderful night out - Richard II”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We visited Stratford-Upon-Avon with the sole intention of seeing this performance as with David Tennant in the role for Richard it was an excellent opportunity to introduce my son to Shakespeare in a setting that he was excited to see. The seats had been sold out weeks earlier but I was lucky enough to purchase some from contact who was unable to go and were in an excellent viewing area, however with the seating in this theatre it would be difficult to find a bad seat as it is set in such a way that the audience feels part of the performance. The staff at the theatre were informative and helpful and getting refreshments during intermission was not as difficult as I had imagined it would be with the amount of people attending.
