3 our of every 5 plays are usually fantastic - too much focus on independent plays but when they stick to the classics they do it well

Have had seasons tickets for years - they always have a great mix of 5 shows plus the Christmas Carol. Usually one Shakespeare, one Victorian, one Canadian and a couple of wild cards. Always well done.
