“A good view from every seat”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This rep theatre employs a small group of actors and they produce a wide range of drama experiences. They also host travelling theatre groups. Every seat has a good view of the stage(amphitheatre style) and there is a loop induction system for hearing aids. There is a small bar upstairs and a restaurant which is under new management.It's very popular with locals so booking of seats is essential.

“Brilliant little theatre in the heart of Dundee”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I have been to the Rep many times for different performances, most recently for 'Love Letters' and am always impressed with the quality of the venue and the variety of plays etc. that they put on. No matter where I have sat I have been able to see the stage and hear everything perfectly, the staff are always pleasant and helpful and they have a great bar and restaruant too. If you can make sure you see a performance with their own in-house cast as they are a group of fantastically talented actors.

“Intimate, well-run venue which lent itself perfectly to "Let the right one in"”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

The play itself was tremendous - well acted and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommend.
The venue was small enough so that you could see the expressions on the actors faces, but large enough to cater for the show-goers.
There was a well stocked bar that served the throng quickly and provided the facility to pre-order drinks for the interval.
There was also a restaurant (untried by us) that looked presentable.
Overall, a fantastic night in a great venue - also there was a reasonably sized car park at the end of the road (free at that time on a Sat night).

“Excellent experience!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

12 of us went to see Let the Right One In. Everyone loved it - very evocative - beautiful set, wonderful music and fabulous cast. Saw a performance here a couple of years ago - also excellent. Great little theatre!
