“Titus Andronicus”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

As ever the RSC deliver an excellent night out. Staging and acting superb, it is unfair to take such excellence for granted but you do. Kevin Harvey as Aaron a commanding performance, one for the future. However this production, while well worth seeing is a serious blood letting. The violence is more or less continuous and very graphic, and given the layout, close. This quality of work is meant to be thought provoking, and it is, but not one for the squeamish.

“Hamlet”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had excellent seats, but all the seats are clear and work. Once the play begins, no matter where you are sitting, you feel close to the stage.

“Living theatre”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Unique layout with vertical stack of galleries. Live minstrels. Seats wrap around three sides of stage, so one feels in the thick of the action. First-class intimately theatrical experience.

“Superb theatre”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Lovely atmosphere with good sight lines from every seat. My very favourite theatre. I have seen a lot of different types of productions here and it works so well for every period of play, with its great flexibility. But don't sit in the front row - too close.
