Last night I went to see Mrs Rich, or The Beau defeated at The Swan theatre, a completely barmy, funny, colourful noisy delight. There are amazing costumes, dogs, guns, singing and dancing, and the most intricate, convoluted plot you can imagine, basically a bawdy restoration...More

Our first time at the Swan far exceeded expectation, from the location to the performance, the staff to the cost. We will definitely be back for more!

We love visiting the Swan Theatre whenever we can. We made a late booking to see "Mrs Rich" - in fact we just managed to get standing tickets! A bargain at £5 each! The production was brilliant and the atmosphere in that theatre is wonderful!!
