Next Donmar Season Announced

Trelawny of the Wells directed by Joe Wright
The Weir directed by Josie Rourke
All sounds good!
And a new ticketing policy ...
"two thirds of venue's front row seats across both the stalls and circle be held back for all performances, and put on sale every Monday for the week of performances two weeks later. These tickets are priced at £10 only, with no booking fee."
... which also sounds fairly sensible, although none of the recent shows have actually sold out!

Sounds strange to me and yes a bit unfair to members who usually get the best choice of seats.

This is instead of day seats but yes, will mean fewer tickets for members (30 I assume since there are 10 day seats)

The Julius Caesar just sounds like a gimmick.
I bet I'm the only person here who saw Joe Wright's only previous production as a theatre director - "A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings" at the Little Angel theatre. Not bad.

If something is popular the phone lines will be in melt down every Monday! At least with day tickets you know exactly where you are....he/she who puts on the effort (yes, that's you Weez) gets the tickets. How will they sort this out exactly? Come Monday morning do they prioritise people who are standing outside or phone bookers or on-line. IT MAKES NO SENSE! And what about people who work on a Monday?
Plus usually the cheap seats are at the front as the risk you take is a slightly restricted view. At the Donmar this is not the case....
I shall probably still go but why do they have to make it needlessly complicated.....and invent a system that probably won't work....

As to the season, no thanks to an all-female Julius Caesar despite the presence of Claire Dunne - playing a woman. But yes to Trelawny, one of my favorite plays.
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.
