I wasn't sure what we were letting ourselves in for - it wasn't Shakespeare but we couldn't go to Stratford and not go to the theatre.
We were not disappointed!
The performance was exactly what you'd expect from the RSC - innovative, engaging and such good watching.
Almost above that though was the theatre itself. My wife and I just couldn't stop grinning from the moment we walked in!
It felt just like walking into the theatre in Shakespeare's day without being just a dull recreation of it. The way the actors utilised the space was great too - we had a number of people pop up behind us or walk past which really drew us in even further to the story.
Be warned though, the seating is 17th century cramped too - not for people with back problems. To be honest though, after about 5 minutes, we completely forgot about it and sat enthralled for 3 hours without even thinking of our backs!
