“The warmest venue we know”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

We've been coming to the Swan since it opened and it still has the same comfortable, welcoming atmosphere it had in the beginning. The size means it's a very intimate experience and the wooden structure gives a natural warmth. A favourite.

“Lovely theatre”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We visited to watch the Arden of Faversham and the following day took the guided behind the scenes tour. The play was a pleasant surprise and the theatre excellent. The behind the scenes tour was very interesting, if not perhaps a few too many stories from the guide (David) about himself. A must see for anyone visiting Stratford or any fan of the RSC/the arts.

“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!
