The Swan Theatre is worth a visit. The stage is in the centre with seating around the sides. The performance (Vice Versa) was entertaining and very professionally performed.

We saw vice versa and laughed from beginning to the end. Well staged, great comic timing. Great gags and a series of monies are just some of the reasons to head on down and enjoy what the RSC has to offer.

We went to see a farce called Vice Versa which was hilarious and very well acted. The theatre is only small so you are quite close to the action wherever you sit. We were on the 1st gallery at one side on the front row...More
