Two tickets with a total face value of £190.00 cost £233.98. How can you justify a handling charge of £44.00???!!!!

The play, the theatre, and the theatre personnel were fantastic. When my daughter experienced a coughing episode, the ushers moved our party of four from the lower stalls to a private box so we could be less of a distraction to the surrounding guests, our experience was so much better and my daughter felt more comfortable and really enjoyed the performance on June 15th. Thank you all soooooo much!

Great show and although saw this many years ago did not remember who the murderer was.

I was so busy trying to cope with the continually high pitched, ranting voice of detective sgt Trotter (played by Alan Magor) that when the climax arrived at the end, I could have happily shot him myself. Stand out performances by ‘ Mrs Boyle, Miss Casewell and Major Metcalf. ‘ Main appeal is the great old theatre and the nostalgia of the set. Be aware that access to the theatre toilets is closed until 30 mins before the show, there are no pre-show refreshments and the foyer is very small with no seating. Fortunately there is a coffee franchise directly opposite , where you will be welcomed with open arms.
