We've always liked the Avon with its classic proscenium-arch stage. The play today showed the theatre at its best. The School for Scandal is a favorite play of ours, and this production was delightful, with excellent performances from Geraint Wyn Davies, Joseph Ziegler and Tyrone Savage among others. Go see it if you have the chance; you won't regret it!

We arrived 20 mins before curtain raising. Patrons moved well, we were in the balcony, and found our seats well enough. Others that had difficulties had them solved quickly and very courteously. The overall experience and the surroundings were top notch. The only beefs were with the access to the washrooms in the balcony, only 1 regular door that was for entry and exit, made for a tight passage. The access to the balcony also only had one real access, though the stairs were wide, another would be realyy beneficial. All in all very good experience.
