It closes tomorrow and it's sold out both matinee and evening, so 9.30am would be too late I think. Still, you can always try!

My colleague went this morning and there were already 20 people at 8:30 - so yes it would be far too late I imagine.

Thanks. Am in the queue. Got here at 9. Am not hopeful of getting a seat but have an hour free to try....

Oh well. Didn't get one. Neither did about 8 people in front of me so at least I didn't just miss out. And I got an hours worth of reading done that I'd not have done otherwise.

Blimey. Goes to show the earlier in the run you do it, the easier it is. When my friend queued for them a couple of weeks into the Pinter run, he was the only person in the queue until about 9:50am. Not to rub salt in your wounds or anything.

Yes, I would say generally that with day seats you have to take a punt and go to previews or very early in the run. I got a day seat for Chimerica early in the run at 12.00 noon and no-one about the box office at all. I find that anything remotely good day seats become very difficult to get without getting up very early!
