WHEN A PRODUCTION IS
Each Monday, a small number of tickets in each price band are released ONLINE
ONLY for performances two weeks later. These are limited to TWO per production.
The Donmar Warehouse also hold 20 STANDING
In the rear circle are available at £10 each at all
performances EXCEPT on Press Night. Standing places are normally only

all 3 and 4 stars. Certainly one for regular theatregoers, feels the monkey.
