Love going to the Marlowe - great annual programme and never disappointed. Lots of pubs around for pre-theatre dinner/drinks and ample local parking too.

Party of 4 from 14 to 77 and we all loved it! It's funny, slightly risqué and feel good and I defy anyone not to leave with a smile on their face. Seen a couple of times in London but much preferred this as you...More
