We saw the Play that Went Wrong, and have not laughed that hard in a while. This is a small but beautiful Theater. I love all of the original architecture! What a gem!

My partner and I went to see The Play That Went Wrong (utterly brilliant by the way). The seats were surprisingly comfy and tiered in a way that meant the person in front didn’t cause an obstruction to the view. A beautiful old theatre and...More

Saw “the play that goes wrong” here two nights ago. We all had a good laugh, even the 14 year old and the slapstick humour would have been appropriate for even much younger kids. A few bits were over-played but overall an excellent time. Wonderful...More
