Good point, there's no mention of that. But the implication seems to be they want to do all of the plays in the RST. Actually when he says "no repetition" maybe they will only do each of them literally once. They'd get through them in just over a month.

I've booked this. Just thought I would confess my no holds barred optimism.

I've booked too. David Tennant on stage is always a joy for me. I like Richard II and Oliver Ford Davies too. :)

Tickets went on sale ten minutes early (naughty!) and I got my preferred seats for my preferred date with no drama (ho ho).

I was down for Winter's Tale (review to come) on Saturday and, as I was collecting some tickets for other things, I had a chat to the woman on the desk.  She said they'd had a flood of membership applications, and were expecting the full members' allocation to sell out by Tuesday. But the website didn't feel quite as grim as some previous occasions.

Got my Richard II.  Got my Fleetwood Mac.  My ticket buying skills are on fire.  But our "we bank with Arts Council England" position is getting worse, as we currently have £1639 of tickets for 14 events, of which £914 is in the subsidised sector.

Ah, so they definitely keep some tickets back for associate members and public booking? Got what I wanted too but the website is in "click on a link and go and make a cup of tea" mode :)

Seems to be all about the Tennant, loads of tickets available for the Mantels.

I was especially pleased with the weekend 11th/12th Jan which enables me to see both Mantels and the Peter Pan in one trip!

I'm surprised it's not possible to see the Mantels in the right order in one trip around Christmas!

It probably is but this weekend had a sunday performance of the Peter Pan too so I went for that one. Both Mantels in one day may be a heavy day though! Very mch looking forward to RII - I have very high hopes for it!

Are the London performances on sale?

Also, what are the ticket prices for Richard 2nd?

Thanks in advance.

London performances go on sale to members in early March.

RII tickets in Stratford are £40 for top price (non-"super seat") stalls (then lower prices at £35/£30/£18/£14), or £50 downwards for Sat evenings
