This was my fifth theatre visit to Hampstead and the one thing that I have come to expect is originality and quality. Prism delivered on all those counts. It is a very clever play that offers a fictionalized scenario of Jack Cardiff's life -- theatrically...More

One of our 'go-to' theatres in London with some innovative work - only one dud in the past 3 years but mostly amazing staging, producing and acting. So close to Swiss Cottage Station so easy to get to.

This is a very congenial theatre at a reasonable price. I book the reduced deals with three performances. Gloria was an interesting play but the nasal american voices and the fast speech left me missing half the story. Down stairs there are also performances and...More

Visited the theatre for penultimate performance of the show Gloria. We were very close to the stage (2nd row) and this added to the enjoyment of the visit.

Very intimate setting. Great play, well acted and directed. Lovely theatre with bar and cafe. Inexpensive at £10 each. Easy access from Swiss Cottage tube.

Modern theater, perfect for a night in the theater. 1 big stage and a few more intimate stages as well. Great to go a bit earlier, grab some bites and wine before a play.

It's quite relaxed and informal at this theatre and I can only speculate that if you spot a cast member after the play, you would get your programme signed. I have never stayed after the performance.

Not certain, I'm 6 1 and had enough leg room although I must say the seats could be more comfy. The view though was superb in this lovely little theatre. If I was super tall I'd get an aisle seat.
