How many tickets does Donmar Discovery entitle you to?  I signed up to this ages ago and never got round to going to Discovery performances.  Given that it's ending now I think I might as well take advantage of it, and I'd quite like to see Berenice anyway.  Is it one per person?

I'm looking to exchange my ticket to an evening performance for this, if anyone's interested. My ticket is for 20th Oct, 2.30pm, £10 side circle.

The circle is still the same. Having been tonight, the whole layout of the ground floor was different with a very interesting set. Certainly amazing as you step inside. Can't say that the performances fully gripped me but that may be down to it still being in previews, and on a plus side everyone (audience and actors alike) seemed to be more invested in the second half. Some very fine moments, especially from Anne-Marie Duff and Stephen Campbell Moore.

What's in the space where the side stall seats have been removed? And is the 1hr45 no interval I heard correct?

The set extends into that part of the auditorium, that's all. And yes, that's correct - maybe even a little shorter, I think I was out by 9.10pm.

1hr 40 mins probably. The production has its memorable moments, from Anne-Marie Duff and Stephen Campbell Moore particularly (as other people mentioned already), but considering the talent involved, it feels timid and a bit of a disappointment. It will probably improve, because the set, as spectacular as it is, is more of a hindrance for the actors and more performances will help them get used to it.

Rave review from Billers, rest a bit lukewarm, quite a few comments on the set being an annoyance
