Unreserved seating for this and they are going to recreate a House of Commons type set. They have a few reserved upstairs, same price.

Perhaps audience members can choose to sit in the Tory, Labour, Liberal Democrat or independents and nationalists parts of the House.

I believe it's only the Pit which has unreserved seating for this, with numbered seats in the other levels.

They'll need more ushers than usual in the Cottesloe then- last week for Detroit, there was not an usher in sight. No one checked my ticket. So if it's unreserved seating, you could just turn up with no ticket and sit down. No one will know.

You gotta have a ticket to get into the auditorium, no?  But having said that I do recall just walking in there on occasion not being checked. O deario, what japes.

You have got to get a ticket to get in, in theory, regardless of reserved/unreserved seating. But my point is the Cottesloe seems to have so few ushers that they don't check tickets as you go in, and you'll never get caught as no one will turn up and say "you're in my seat" since it's unreserved. And you can go in upstairs anyway, where I guarantee to you no usher ever ventures.

I've booked reserved seating upstairs cos not sure I could cope with  a push and shove situation let alone a queue! So I will be looking down on proceedings and chucking the odd paint bomb.

You don't want to sit on a lovely padded green leather bench then?

I now have a mental image lodged in my head of Lynette as one of the abseiling lesbian demonstrators who descended into the Lords chamber from the public gallery in 1988.
