Love how small this theatre is compared to all the others in London, perfect for the Woman in Black showings. The stage is masterfully set up with the gauze obscuring the nursery if lit from the front, and then appearing slightly blurry when backlit creating...More

Visited to see the woman in black. The theatre is old and tiny, but fairly well presented. There is a small bar serving a good selection of drinks, and offering interval drinks orders to be delivered to your seat. The toilets are really small but...More

We visited this theatre for The Woman in Black, the facilities were good - although the toilets were very small. The bar was perfectly good for the size of theatre. The seats were a bit weird though, extremely small leg room so much so that...More

Lovely little theatre. Very quaint. Drinks very expensive but expecting it. Ladies toilets are the size of a shoe box and only two cubicles. The show was very slow to start with but once you got in to it was good. Good acting and some...More

Great acoustics and view, even from the upper ring. Thoroughly enjoyed performance - however, there were many terrified drama students. I guess it just adds to the tensions! 10/10 would recommend

Absolutely loved Women in black tonight. It’s a must see! Now one of the best shows I’ve seen and real credit to the actors. The actual theatre itself isn’t the most comfortable but the performance really blew us away so it didn’t matter at all.

I though the play was excellent, the actors had me gripped all the way through, and I jumped many times throughout. For that I have no complaints, nor with the staff, who were lovely; We thoroughly enjoyed the performance, well done, I would happily recommend....More
