We visited and watched “Tamburlaine “ , a very atmospheric and “bloody”performance , the theatre itself is a wonderful place but not so much the cafe/bar in the foyer absolutely heaving all the time , the seating isn’t as comfy so made for a bit...More
This theatre oozes history and is an excellent re-imagining of an Elizabethan playhouse. It’s intimacy is refreshing and a world away from a typical theatre with proscenium arch. The facilities are excellent with a bar nearby, handy loos, wheelchair access etc. My favourite theatre!
The Swan Theatre is the smaller and the newest of the two theatres that make up the RSC’s Stratford complex the other being the Royal Shakespeare. Completed in 1986 and seating 450 it feels like a medieval cockpit with views on three sides over what...More
Our first visit to the RSC and we weren't disappointed. The setting is exquisite- the ever so slightly uncomfortable seating kind of adds authenticity to the experience. And the play...... excruciatingly funny, sad, biting, and brilliantly performed. And plenty of toilets, so unusual for a...More
The swan theatre is a gem: everything you would expect from a first-class theatre.
This new adaptation of Tartuffe was truly excellent: witty, modern, cutting, funny and very well acted.

Saw Tamburlaine at the swan theatre. First time visitor so only £10 per head. Show was awesome and the cast amazing. Pre order your interval drinks the staff suggested. Glad I did as big que. great experience
Very atmospheric production of what is a monochromatic play in which bloodbath prevails. The acting is fine and there are even moments of humour - Mark Hadfield is excellent on this. Rosy McEwen has remarkable presence as Tamburlaine's wife. The music enhances the action.
Visited recently for the production Tartuffe. Beautiful inside and fairly comfortable seats.
The show itself was really excellent. Sitting on the front row we were very close to the action! Tickets are quite pricey but was fully entertained. Would definitely recommend.
