Puts on interesting plays - we went to a restoration comedy. It was well acted, and the speakers were very clear. You could both see and hear everything. It’s in the heart of Richmond with very good public transport as well as car parks. There...More

I love this small theatre in the round. It does interesting plays which are well acted and not too worthy or political (unlike the Bush theatre) The current production- Mayfly has great actors and an interesting plot and dialogue Small bar area.

I have frequented this wonderful little theatre, many many times. It is a smaller stage than most other theatres but that adds to the intimate atmosphere. The actors very often enter the stage from different parts of the theatre, which again adds to an air...More

This continues to be a wonderful theatre. Since my last review it has been great to go to performances now the seats are numbered. Also I've enjoyed the high stool seats on the 3rd/back rows on the ground floor level, and would choose them in...More

Saw matinee performance of 'Sheppey'. A great place. Theatre in the round. An intimate theatre experience. Comfy padded bench seats. Bar area is pleasant but rather small and cannot accommodate many. There are steps up to the entrance and the toilets are down a flight...More
