Saw this on Friday night and there were a few additional lines that had obviously been tweaked or added following Thatcher's death.  They appeared in Cameron's audience.  Made up for the round of applause that Haydn Gwynne got just for walking on stage as Thatcher (which was more than Helen Mirren got...)

So do we think between 8 & 9am is too late to get in line for dayseats for this?

Yes probably too late - this is really a hot ticket. More like 7.00am I would think :(

This play is sensational. There was some dialogue commenting on the Queen attending Thatcher's funeral tomorrow. Could have seemed a little contrived but was actually quite touching.

Helen Mirren is truly incomparable, and the rest of the cast are fabulous too.

Oh I loved it so much! Act two in particular was just exceptional. Obviously been some changes since the death of Margaret Thatcher, but it puts into perspective that Thatcher was only 6 months older than Her Majesty.

A very good play, and well worth the three hour wait outside!

Anyone have any more experiences of day seating for this?  Trying to work out what time I'd need to get there...

Got there at 7.05 today and was 7th (today was a 2 show day) There were 40+ at 10am so some would have been disappointed, I'm sure.

I really enjoyed it. Some special moments which really stood out. I liked the writing, and the post-Thatcher-death rewrites.

Well worth the early start and a tenner.. Not sure it would be worth the price of a premium ticket.....but then again not a lot would be.

Out of interest where are the day seats now? Did they move them from front row after press night ?
