I booked a ticket very last minute and was able to get a fantastic cheap seat in the third row (stall section) closer to the middle. The Woman In Black was fantastic! The theatre was much smaller than I would have expected. Nevertheless, I loved...More

This is a very interesting staging of the well-known book and film. The format is simple but also clever. Performances were good and there were a few genuine shocks. Don't expect the effects of the film, but with the limitations of the stage setting, this...More

Second time i have been. First time was good, second time was very boring. No Aircon, boiling hot. Actors were ok but was basically just reading out a book. 2hr30 and no break. Seats so uncomfortable. Will not be going back anytime soon!!
