The Curve is such a wonderfully versatile venue. This performance of The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss was admirable for the skills and versatility of the actors. A delight for young and old.

Came after Christmas on a bit of a whim at last minute as some good seats available at short notice. As usual a fabulous production from the Curve Team. So lucky to have such a fantastic theatre on our doorstep. Long may it prosper.
