Except if you sit at the side you spend the whole evening gazing directly across at your fellow audience members on the opposite side as they read their programmes, drink their drinks, talk to each other, fall asleep and so on.

It as not as bad as at the Swan (because the distances are greater) especially in the early days when they used to sell the play texts instead of a normal programme. For some reason I found it uniquely infuriating to see someone sitting there following the text along with the actors and never looking at the stage once. Eventually, as it was putting the actors off also, they had to issue a request to the audiences not to do it.
