Following an initial phase when I took prepayments for seats and booked several blocks for group members, this option is now closed. Please book your own seat direct with the theatre. Also, if you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number (and whether stalls or circle) in the comments below, for group members who might want to book a neighbouring seat.
Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.
In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the performance. Also, we will have drinks in the theatre cafe-bar after the play, for anyone who would like to stay on afterward for a conversation about the play.
