I cannot recommend this highly enough, it was so well acted and had moments that leave you gob smacked. It is also highly topical in light of recent events. I can see why this won the Pulitzer prize.

I was also very amused to witness an audience member attempt to use a toilet which was in fact part of the set.

I've just booked. Thought I wouldn't be able to make it, but I see it's extended by a week so got a ticket for the closing night. They're going v quickly it seems. Most of the dates are sold out.

I also thought this was stunning - it literally packs a punch, pun intended!  I have seen reviews saying it was too schematic, and I see what was meant, but as one observed, a cracking production camouflages the flaws.  Certainly one of the best things I've seen this year.

Excellent. I sat front row and almost got hit by a knife and fork! I won't talk about the plot but I loved the fact that it tackled really difficult issues and didn't try to make things simple. First class acting. Great set.
I did want to eat some of the biscuits and dip....I am so shallow!
All sold out I think? They had a waiting list of 40 for returns for tonights show!

40?! Goodness. I'm there on the last night- wonder how long it'll be by then.... Good to know I can always sell on my ticket if I can't make it. And great to see the Bush has got a hit once more.
Glad you enjoyed it Latecomer. What's the seating configuration for this?

Transverse staging....just 2 sides with straight rows going up. They use either end of the stage to be hidden bedroom/d kitchen at one end and entrance to apartment/loo at other. Works well. Big area for set. Sight lines fine from middle of front row on left as you go in.
