Fantastic and thought provoking production. The cast were totally convincing as a real family. Poignant, funny and very moving. As relevant as when it was first performed 22 years ago. A standing ovation this afternoon- well deserved

Been to this theatre many times always good performance, but have to say was disappointed yesterday as the acting was poor by the younger performers I have seen the same performance previously and thought it was excellent.
One other thing I have to mention the theatre was so uncomfortable during the performance due to no A/C uncomfortably hot I have noticed this previously same comments from other goers I heard as I was leaving.

Not being a theatre luvie I really went to this not expecting much - I was wrong it was really brilliant .
The theatre itself could do with a bit of a makeover but was certainly very good if a little warm on this very cold night.
The performance was captivateing and although prob shakespeares best (argueably) was very enjoyable .
I may take in another couple of plays in the near future - prob a comedy or two .
I hope I enjoy as much as this place.
Has both a coffee bar and a drinks bar upstairs , i used the cofee bar, filter coffee is less than £2 again recomended.
