Don’t panic if you turn up a bit late for Rough Haired Pointer’s revival of Peter Barnes’ 1969 play – there’s not really much to see until the half-way point. For 45 minutes, the emaciated, scabby-fleshed St Eusebius (Jordan Mallory-Skinner) works his...Fringe Until Saturday August 1 2015Read more

Dirty toilets, poor service and rude staff. This place has gone downhill since getting a late licence.
I loved "Elixir of Love". Everything was spot on - singing, acting, direction and translation. In fact I am going to book to see the parallel cast who have had equally good reviews. Hope it has not sold out yet!
So much fun to have our very own opera house in Islington. Have now seen three new opera productions here (Barber of Seville, Madam Butterfly & The Coronation of Poppea) and would highly recommend every single one. Wonderful to have singers so close up, you see every expression. No food served in the pub these days, but lots of good finds on Upper Street. Look forward to the next opera!
I have never experienced such poor customer service. The theatre cancelled the performance of Barber of Seville for the third time in a row and hasn't notified me in time. Avoid buying tickets in advance for their shows as the show will probably be cancelled.
