Poky little theatre with teeny tiny bathrooms and creaking doors all adds to the atmosphere for a performance of The Woman in Black, which is excellent. Fantastic storytelling and the cast of 2 (!) here are energetic and highly worth of praise.

Second time i have been. First time was good, second time was very boring. No Aircon, boiling hot. Actors were ok but was basically just reading out a book. 2hr30 and no break. Seats so uncomfortable. Will not be going back anytime soon!!

We chose this play/show on a Buy a Gift voucher we'd been given at Christmas. Never been in such a small theatre, which was rather run down and in need of a makeover, but it did lend itself to the whole experience. We have bigger...More

A very good play and i must add that it is well done considering there are only 2 actors throughout. For those people complaining that it was boring - you need an imagination to watch this play! Great atmosphere and the actors had very good...More

Over the years as well as this trip, I've been to many theatres in London. Seldom write a facility or performance review. This may be the smallest theatre around. Needs significant refurbishment, but in this case it adds to the show--Woman in black dress. Terrific...More

Booked for birthday treat for my husband as it is his favourite film. We both loved it. Yes it was just basic props...but the acting was truly suburb. Kept us engrossed throughout. Lots of jumps and humour.
