Went to see the play East is East. An Asian play that has been done as a film. Thought the film was hilarious but thought the play a lot darker. Enjoyed it immensely. Only one play now until the reburbishment. I hope the Phoenix rises from these ashes.

Good access to venue, great seats. Amazing show! Shame there was only a few toilets for such a crowd.

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.
