We saw The Snapper here in August 2018. Great production, and the staging was inventive and effective. Thoroughly enjoyed all around!

We arrived for the evening performance of 'The Snapper' which whilst it started late was brilliant - lots of laughter, great stage set up and cast. Unfortunately mayhem in the interval....the queue for toilets went down a staircase and round the corner to the bar...More

Laughed my heart out at the Snapper - wonderful production. Years since I was at the Gate and must say it is a super venue intimate but powerful for any producion

No there is none that I’m aware of. I do believe that common sense should prevail and one should not dress in any attire that appeared too shabby.
