“Arden of Faversham”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Saw this play in the Swan Theatre last night. It is a real Shakesperian style auditorium and the view of the action is grand from your chosen level. The staff were very helpful and the seats comfortable. The production was innovative and most enjoyable with excellent staging and acting. I wouldn't have missed it for the world!

“The Swan Experience”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Really atmospheric, like stepping back into Tudor times. With the seats arranged around the stage you really feel that you are in the middle of the action, try to get a seat on the ground level. A fantastic experience!!
